Could my adrenals and thyroid levels being low affect my high iron but low RBC levels?

Could my adrenals and thyroid levels being low affect my high iron but low RBC levels?

High iron: Probably not. If you have been having low RBC levels you may have been given high doses of iron. If the low RBC is not iron deficiency anemia, then iron will not help. High iron in blood can cause many problems including accumulation in the liver causing hemachromatosis. ...Read more

Can low thyroid+adrenal fatigue be treated in parallel?How much time(avg) needed to recover from mild adrenal fatigue?Suggest some helpful exercise.

Sure they can: How long to recover depends on how severe your issues are. The most important treatment principle in recovering from adrenal fatigue is to manage stress. Get enough sleep. Meditate and do yoga. Moderate exercise, and in fact, moderation in all things is the key to recovering from adrenal fatigue. Avoid sugar, alcohol and coffee. It may take 6 months to a year. ...Read more

I have septo optic dysphasia and a low pituitary and thyroid i want to get a tatoo but i'm worried if i could go into adrenal shock is that possible ?

I have septo optic dysphasia and a low pituitary  and thyroid i want to get a tatoo but i'm worried if i could go into adrenal shock is that possible ?

Hypopituitarism: I did see that you are on Hydrocortisone or Prednisone which would be used if you are cortisol deficient from your pituitary condition. Even if you were cortisol deficient i don't think the stress of getting a tatoo would case adrenal crisis in someone withno history of cortisol deficiency. Just to be safe i would recommend that you ask your md when you adrenal function was last tested. ...Read more

I've had itching, prickling sensation over my upper body. All blood work (vit, thyroid, adrenal) is normal. Fatigue, achy and sore when done itching.

Hard to know: Generalized itching without rash could be from a variety of potential causes from dry, irritated skin to metabolic disturbance due to exposure/ingestion to serious kidney or liver failure or blood disorder. You will need a more thorough consideration to determine cause. Hopefully, the solution will bring some relief! ...Read more

High wbc, chronic fever(low), fatigue, adrenal innsufficiency, thyroid disease, nodules on thyroid.Had biopsy, hard to eat, swallow, breathe, 20yrs chronicwbc?

You have a lot of Sx: Have you discussed all these symptoms with your doctor and are you on treatment. Trouble swallowing after biopsy of thyroid could indicate some significant swelling or bleeding in the nodule especially if symptoms not there before. F/u with your endocrinologist. Also are you on treatment for adrenal insufficiency, if not d/w your doctor why not. ...Read more

I am have symptoms of low thyroid and adrenal fatigue.My total t3-66.1, cortisol-22.13, tsh&ft4-normal.Dr. Says no tx.Should i see an endo/2nd opinion?

Discuss with doctor: Agreed with dr. Lewy-weiss. You should talk to your current doctor about your concerns to hear the reason why he/she made the recommendation that he/she did. This person knows ur symptoms and history best to make this determination. In general, a mildly elevated cortisol is "transient" and most likely will be normal the next time it's checked. Don't jump to treatment without knowing the diagnosis. ...Read more

What supplement/s to cover adrenal and thyroid support is the best?

Why supplements?: Your thyroid and adrenals are precisely regulated by the pituitary and other factors. If your thyroid and adrenal are functioning normally, then you don't need supplements, and they will not help you. If your thyroid or adrenals are underactive, then you need to take hormone replacement. Best done by a doctor who knows about this (eg. An endocrinologist). Not someone who sells his own supplement. ...Read more

Is it possible to have adrenal fatigue without thyroid issues?

Adrenal fatigue: Although i sometimes struggle with the term "adrenal fatigue" in terms of definition/diagnosis, it certainly can be in the differential in any indivudual who has unexplained fatigue, increased somnolence, muscle pain, etc. Having said that, hypothyroidism which also can give you the above symptoms, in association with adrenal insufficiency is not common (called schmidt's syndrome).

I heard there was a diet to calm the adrenal gland, and rev-up the thyroid gland. Does something like this exist?

No: There is no such diet and anybody that tells you different it is a scam. Besides, trying to rev-up the thyroid to loose weight is not a good idea as too much thyroid hormone can lead to serious problems. Healthy eating and exercise are best ways to loose weight. ...Read more

I have adrenal gland/overactive thyroid problem, what to do?

Get treatment: I'm not sure what kind of adrenal problem you have, but if it is adrenal insufficiency, the overactive thyroid could make that much worse. Both conditions need treatment. Treatment options for an overactive thyroid include surgery to remove the thyroid, radioactive iodine to kill the thyroid, and pills to block the production of thyroid hormone. ...Read more

Autoimmune disease: I do not know that one would cause the other. However, Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency) and Graves disease (hyperthyroidism) are both autoimmune, and autoimmune endocrine issues often coexist, or occur in someone at different times in their life.
