Does adrenal fatigue interact directly with your thyroid?

Maybe. "adrenal fatigue" is not a specific medical diagnosis. Hypothyroidism can indeed produce fatigue, weight gain, etc. See a good medical doctor for a thorough workup and treatment plan.
Not recognized. Adrenal fatigue isn't a recognized medical diagnosis, though adrenal insufficiency is. Patients with autoimmune or hypothalamic/ pituitary adrenal insufficiency can have concomitant hypothyroidism for different reasons of either autoimmune or hypothalamic/pituitary origins respectively.

T4/T3 conversion NG. The elevated cortisol inhibits the hepatic transformation of T4 to t3 (liothyronine). Normally the T4 is deioidonated to T3 (liothyronine) to produce the active thyroid hormone. However the presence of high cortisol impairs this process. The TSH and ft4 are nl b/c the thyroid itself works fine, it is the liver that is not ok. Find and fix cause of cortisol elevation (various stressors) and possibly use T3 (liothyronine) supplementation. Read more...
