Hi,
My test results showed low in Pregnenolone and DHEA. My doctor suggested a Pregnenolone cream.
My concern is that I hear Pregnenolone increases cortisol and I already have high cortisol....
Is there any supplements to take with Pregnenolone which can redirect the pathway so the Pregnenolone does not turn into Cortisol ?
Thanks

I just listened to this podcast regarding this subject, and thought i share:

It does mention Vitamin A and Niacin as vitamins that effects the hormonal pathways. My Vitamin A in regular blood test was normal, but I do have higher than normal cholesterol. I don't like taking Niacin as a supplement due to possible intestinal bleeding. But I am taking Riboflavin now which is suppose to increase Niacin by converting Tryptophan to Niacin.
