    Hi Wayne,
    thanks so much for the tip re liposomal Vit C. I read Dr. Lam protocol is really into that. Also want to thank you for sharing your experience with HC. Your article about it from years ago on ProHealth was the first one I found about people with CFS taking Cortef (I found it in 2012). Also enjoy your many other posts on this forum. Wishing you a full recovery!

    Hey RIman, thanks for the tip on Dr. Lam, I'll definitely check him out. Another doctor you may be interested in is Thomas Levy. Here's a snippet about him from THIS ARTICLE:

    Sushi - if I could get people on the board to agree, I would collate data. I would collate it until Kingdom Come.

    There would probably be a privacy issue with collecting data, though that might be overcome if it were done in conjunction with a well-known researcher/institution. As an individual, here on this board, I don't think you would get many participants.

    ...I work for a university? Affiliated with Johns Hopkins? I could make it a study? :thumbsup:

    Honestly, I have no idea if my school would go in for that, though. Non-coincidentally, I've been thinking of talking to them about research, and about this idea in particular.

    I really would need a statistician to discern whether my correlations were significant.

    That could work--are you up for proposing it?

    Hi Ema,

    I had never heard of taking a combination of dexamethasone and HC, and I find this method intriguing.

    Do you take the dexamethasone in the morning or night? How does this combo "feel" compared to HC multi-dosing?

    Also, can you recommend any adrenal-specific forums? I used to belong to the NTH-Adrenals Yahoo group many years ago, but it doesn't seem to be around anymore.
