High Cortisol And Hypothyroidism
Hx of hashi's & sjogrens. Had cortisol checked b/c I've had fatigue and it came back high. Could this be due to hypothyroidism somehow still?
The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ located in the front part of the neck. Its role is to make thyroid hormones, which control the way cells use energy. Hyperthyroidism results when the thyroid gland is overactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced, which speeds up metabolism.

TSH level: 0, T3/T4 normal, cortisol thru the roof, lymphocytes elevated, BP: 160/100 and waking @ 3am. MD saying it's hypothyroid. I disagree. Help?
Cushing syndrome: Cortisol thru the roof is Cushing syndrome until ruled out. Our job is to figure out why this is happening. Taking steroids can do this but shouldn't affect thyroid.

Low cortisol (adrenal insufficiency) is a rare disorder, typically autoimmune related, and must be diagnosed correctly, not simply by a low cortisol level. ...Read more

A spot cortisol is of little value except as a screen for addison's which i will assume is ruled out. Your high prolactin and low libido in a man with some serious acne like you're being treated for makes me suspect strongly that you have a prolactinoma. ...Read more
