theres lots of cases of low dose hydrocortisone/corticoids helping recover adrenal function. and i know of personal experience. low dose hydrocortisone/prednisone/adrenal glandular can help...no, will help your adrenals bounce back. as for me...i personally had to go over the recommended 40mg hc dosage to get my adrenals back up and running. i had to go on 60-80mg daily for a year to recover my adrenals. 20-40mg a day did nothing to resolve my hypoadrenalism. my hypoadrenal was stage 3. which means they were so weak they couldnt even handle dhea hormone. dhea would cause adrenal fatigue. if your hypoadrenalism is stage 3. mine were. very close to failing permanently. also. fun fact. JFK, the president...was a sufferer of addisons. he had hypoadrenalism, hypothyroidism and hypogonadism. just like me. i have all three. Kennedy was diagnosed with Addison's in the 1940s. In 1955 he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, an insufficient output of thyroid hormones. Symptoms can include many of those associated with Addison's, as well as paleness, intolerance to cold, depression and a low heart rate. he was on, 500 milligrams of vitamin C twice daily; 10 milligrams of hydrocortisone daily; 2.5 milligrams of prednisone twice daily; 10 milligrams of methyltestosterone daily; 25 micrograms of liothyronine twice daily; 0.1 milligrams fludrocortisone daily; and diphenoxylate hydrochloride and atropine sulfate, two tablets as needed. see...docs wanna bullshit and say there's no such thing as hypoadrenalism. that is...until they find out you are the guy with his thumb on the red button and has the nucleur launch codes. then all of a sudden they make damn sure that the guy with with his thumb on the red button gets ALL THE HORMONE REPLACEMENT he needs or wants. last thing you want... is the guy with the launch codes to be a foggy headed, low energy, depressed cause he cant get a hard on while with Marilyn Monroe, fumbling bumbling because he cant concentrate mess. they made damn sure his hormone levels...ALL of his hormone levels were optimal. thats if you dont want him nuking you and your world because he couldnt perform his job from being......... underdosed. or his obvious hypoadrenalism being ignored or scoffed at.
