Due to some of my health issues i requested a cortisol and adrenal test. Mine both came back low and when I looked it up my jaw hit the floor and I thought I have to share this....
This is an exert from http://adrenalfatiguesolution.com/immune-system/
Low cortisol leads to increased production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which lead to an over-activation of the immune system and inflammation. According to Dr. Thomas Guilliams, an immunologist, “The result is amplification of numerous inflammatory pathways and increased susceptibility to developing inflammatory diseases, including autoimmune diseases, mood disorders, atopy, malignancy, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain syndromes, obesity, glucose dysregulation and fibromyalgia.”
Why is this being kept a secret? Why isn't this a test done if you have fibromyalgia or chronic pain or any of those things? It was a simple blood test!!!! I have almost everything on that list!!!!!
