Nap 50s steroids

Hi girls. I know this thread was last year but thought I would pop in anyway just in case. I too have HIGH cortisol levels and have struggled with this for over 12 years. Yep 12! Count them…. physical anxiety with all the nasty symptoms and am currently battling it again. With that said, in my research about this problem, I came across Dr. Joseph Mercolas website. He did an article on a test called the DUTCH test. It tests ALL the hormones connected to your adrenals AND their metabolites! I have done many saliva tests in the past but this one give you so much more about why they could be high. In Mercolas article he interviewed Dr. Mark Newman creator of the test. What sold me on this test was the example he gave of a gal that had the test and they found she had high cortisol, and if it was the saliva test they would have administered Seri-Phos to lower the levels because all you see on the saliva test is measurement of cortisol not metabolites. So on her test it showed her metabolites were low! Throwing seriphos at them was not the solution. It was an imbalance. Not that she was producing too much but the cortisol she had wasn’t leaving her body. Anyway, I thought it was worth the money to have it checked out. I bought the test online (don’t have to have a doc to order it and you get off using Mercolas name) Anyway, the results for me was amazing. ALL my hormones that they tested were off the charts!!! I now know I have PCOS (not known before) I have been estrogen dominant all my life even with oophorectomy. So, just thought you might like to know about another option for testing. Not sure how I’m going to get “fixed”. that’s another story. I think Dr. Jonathan Wright does his own version the test too. You can google Mercola and search on his sight for DUTCH test and get discount or you can google DUTCH test on the net. It is a urine test and the turn around time is about 2 weeks.

The weight gain, caused by having years of see-sawing between starvation when bingeing on meth and then binge eating when there is no meth around. Meth use has wrecked his ability to regulate many of his normal functions. He now never feels full after eating. He once ate a $300 food shop in a day and then went out that night for hamburgers. The resulting spikes in blood sugar levels make him vulnerable to infections, as do the periods of no nutrition when bingeing. This means that any cuts, pimples or ingrown hairs can rapidly turn to large, painful abscesses.

Sabrina, did you all pull an old cast iron bathtub out of your “new” house. Our cast iron tube installed by builder in 1977 is in very good condition and because of the labor involved and disruption of pulling it out of there, we have chosen to leave it as is. We are shower people so it hasn’t been used for bathing but about 6 or 8 times over a 9 year period we’ve been there. I’m trying to find out how the frame was built around the “new” tub you have in your bathroom. I remember when our SIL installed a jacuzzie type tub in their house, he built a frame surround the tub and tiled it, completing the look you have on yours. I like that finished look, how does one built that frame and tile it around an older bathtub?

4years ago I had which I now know was PMR. Although never diagnosed at that time I was treated with tapering doses of prednisone and analgesic meds and after 6 mos all symptoms disappeared. Three months ago after a mild URI I came down with the EXACT same symptoms a frustrating condition! Only abnormal tests were very high sed rate and C-reactive proteins which are indicative of edema,along with a mild anemia. Went back to the same Drs who were perplexed as to why I had this 4 year remission until I went to a new Rheumatologist ( previous one had retired) who finally diagnosed PMR. 24 hours after the first dose of steroid(40mg) I was 85% better. I am now on a tapering dose currently 20mg and take acetaminophen at regular 4 hour intervals( being. Careful not to exceed 4000mg max per day )
It has given me my life back. I am being followed for side effects of the steroids but the plan is to keep tapering dosage till weaned completely. I know this is not a cure but if it will give me another 4 year respite I will be eternally grateful! (I am now 62yr but first episode was at age 58)
