I took one so called synacthen-test that clearly showed that my adrenal glands was producing too less cortisol. I started on Cortef (5mg hydrocortisone tablets) for about 2 1/2 months ago but I don't feel that this is helping me any so far. What seems to help is to stick to the diet (candida) and take supplements to strenghten the immune system and enzymes to get the digestion functioning again (have had various degree of constipation for about a year now). I think that when the body is enable to digest and benefit from the nutrition in the food you eat, it will also be able to recover the function of the adrenal glands. Fats are the key ingredients in producing hormones in your body, so my guess is that if you have some kind of dissorder in your digestion system this can cause adrenal failure.. Any thoughts?!
