I have had my cortisol and DHEA-S tested via every-4-hour saliva 3 times in the past year. (Using the company Neurogistics). My DHEA is low at all time points; my cortisol varies but is not curving at all the way it should. My doc (as most western docs seem) doesn't believe there can be anything between a healthy adrenal and a dead one. I've shown my med doc and my p-doc my results. They just set them aside.

I am taking Targeted Amino Acid Therapy as recommended by Neurogistics. The amino acids have helped -- my bipolar is far more under control now, for example. But I fear it isn't working well enough to combat what the dexi is doing to me. I'd love to find a doctor who can monitor me and go beyond the AMA!

The supplements I take have a lot of magnesium, but not much naicin (in any form). I'm going to ask my Neurogistics practitioner about adding some.

I have 4 kids. A 22-yr-old who has bipolar and spends too much time in jail, a 19-year-old who is physically and mentally disabled. (Thankfully, she is living with her caregivers, but I am still her guardian, etc.), a 9-year-old with Aspergers who shows signs of failing after 2 weeks of 4th grade and a 5-year-old who we are testing for Bipolar, etc. as his behavior is bizzare and he is not potty trained yet (and more).

So, yes, you were saying about lack of stress? I hire help whenever / wherever we can afford it. But we have no family within 1000 miles ... lots of people look for ways to help me reduce my stress, and many times a day I have to make a choice between "me" or something else. I choose "me" as often as I possibly can.

I know the stress is what got me so bad off, and on days like today I know it -- combined with the meds I currently can't live without -- is killing me.

> Seriously did you doc test your adrenal function and diagnose as adrenal fatigue? If that is the case cure is rest, lack of stress and maybe low dose of prednisone for a limited amount of time. Phillipa
