Posting the Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) Test results received from Diagnos-Techs, Inc. Note the images 4 and 5, which provide a great restoration plan approach to resolving the adrenal deficiencies found in the test. Hoping this may be helpful for folks out there that have seen similar results, but are unsure how to proceed.

  • Thanks for posting the great info. Glad you are having good success with your treatment, particularly with restoring a normal circadian rhythm. Good to hear someone else appreciates Tribulus too. I have found it to be excellent for both liver health and supporting adrenal function...more people should know about it!

    Hope you continue to see improvements. All the best.

  • I have seen success following the suggestions, specifically those listed on the last page:

    1a) Optimize DHEA/cortisol balance

    Initially, I started on 10mg of hydrocortisone in the am, 5mg in the afternoon for a period of 3 months. There are definitely some drawbacks to taking the steroid approach, but the dosages are fairly low, and as my circadian cycle stabalized, I was able to slowly ween off the dosage. I plan to be off the hydrocortisone completely in the next two weeks.

    I have also been on sublingual DHEA supplements, 5mg twice a day.

    1b) Balance sympathetic/parasympathetic activity

    I had to look these terms up, but basically the sympathetic system is fight or the flight system while the parasympathetic system is the rest and digest system. Balancing these two for me has included getting restful sleep, taking digestive enzymes, eliminating external stressors, guided meditation, and breathing exercises (parasympathetic) and biking, walking, hiking, restorative yoga (sympathetic). The key for me has been maintaining the "balance" piece: too much parasympathetic can lead to muscle loss, depression, and sleep impairment while sympathetic, or "pushing myself" too hard physically or mentally, has led to increased fatigue, illness, and a worsening of existing symptoms.

    2c) Botanical adaptogen supplementation

    On top of taking B-vitamin supplements, probiotics, a good multivitamin, and an Adrenal Support complex formula [url]http://www.mossnutrition.com/products/adrenalsupportplus60vc/?listWidgetID=227[/url], I am taking the following adaptogens: Tribulus, Macuna Prueneis.

    I have previously taken Siberian Ginseng with limited results, and will be trying out Rhodiola and Panax Ginseng shortly.

    Hope this is helpful.

  • Wow this was helpful I'm in total adrenal insufficiency Anybody had success with the suggested supplements?

  • Many thanks for posting this! Your results are very similar to mine in that we both have depressed morning levels and slightly elevated night time levels. The worst possible case in my mind since without adequate morning cortisol we don't have the enrgy and drive to function and then at night we have too much cortisol keeping us awake and disrupting sleep...creating a viscious cycle!

    Interestingly, I was looking through Dr. Barry Peatfield's book Your Thyroid and How to Keep it Healthy this morning. It addresses adrenal fatigue in detail and Dr. Peatfield feels (correctly I believe) that you can't effectively treat hypothyroidism without treating adrenal hypofunction first, if it is present. Anyway, his nutrient recommendations are identical to those presented in your report.

    All the best of luck with your treatment efforts. I am planning to try the Nutricology Adrenal Glandular shortly so will let you know how that works out.
