Gland problems: If you have insufficiency of adrenals, thyroid, and gonads, you may have one of the autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes. The glandular failures, when they occur in this relatively rare disorder, are usually permanent. But you need to be under the care of an endocrinologist, who is best equipped to diagnose and treat this.

This is very good advice. You have Schmidt's polyendocrine autoimmune disease until proven otherwise. Adrenal insufficiency is extremely treacherous and you should be followed by a specialist. The low vitamin D levels are probably unrelabed.

Should nonetheless get your vitamin D3 level up since vit D3 is considered an important immune regulator. It may not reverse your autoimmune issues but certainly won't hurt.
