OK, since Im going down the adrenal fatigue line, im after some feeback on hydrocort experience. Now from my understanding doses <20mg a day supposedly dont cause adrenal hormone suppression through negative feedback, any thoughts on this? Now it seems that the normal dose is 5-10mg in the morning with another 5 mgs after lunch, this seems to be the norm. Using this treatment for a few weeks is suppose to 'rest' the adrenals and supposedly kickback into gear, has anyone had this experience or are they having to take hydrocort forever to maintain positive outcomes? Also does this therapy help reverse a back to front cortisol secretion ie low morning cortisol and high night time cortisol levels to a high morning and low night time and thus improving sleep quality and quantity. Lastly does this resting of the adrenals help improve dhea levels. I appreciate any feedback. I have had good improvement with antivirals and immune system treatments but still have this residuel fatigue, exercise intolerence and sleep problems which i think is due to adrenal problems which has been shown in testing of my dhea/cortisol levels being low. If i could improve just my sleep i think would make big improvements and get me over the line into being normal. I have also thought that its only been a short while that i have had my viral load down which would be the main stress contributing to adrenal stress, so maybe its just going to take time to rest and heal the adrenals. Maybe Im just inpatient. cheers!!!
