Giardia linked to IBS and chronic fatigue

Interesting article on a possible correlation between chronic fatigue and acute giardiasis.  This is apropos to my own case history, as many of my health issues (including CFS and IBS) cropped up after being diagnosed and treated with Giardia.   http://www.research1st.com/2011/09/13/giardia-link/   Full text article from Gut:   http://press.psprings.co.uk/gut/september/gut300220.pdf...

ACTH Stimulation Test Results

ACTH Stimulation Test Results
Recently received back my ACTH stimulation test results and wanted to share (below).  Ideally, I would have done a repeat of the Adrenal saliva panel I had done 8 months ago, but that is not an option right now due to my financial situation.  Doctor says everything looks good (within the ranges), and suggested that maybe the symptoms of fatigue, low stress tolerance, etc. are not hormonal, but possibly some type of ongoing infection; he has referred me to an infectious disease doctor. Not sure if others have seen similar results, or been able to correlate their ACTH stimulation results to their saliva results, or have ever seen the test show results for adrenal insufficiency vs. failure. Thoughts?

The importance of tracking your progress...

Like many folks on the site, I am healing exclusively with the aid of OTC vitamins and supplements.  Although the healing response is often much slower than with prescription drugs, and there is more experimentation necessary, I consider it a much safer alternative that I feel I have much more control over.  The big downside of course,  is that one can end up with a laundry list of supplements to research, purchase, take correct dosages of, and track responses to.  This can become very overwhelming, especially if you are unsure whether a particular supplement is really providing any benefit, or if it is just burning a big hole in your pocket.   Wanted to share with folks here a reminder to do your best to track your supplements and the progress you make on them.  Recently, I have done I poorer job than usual at this, and it has led...

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.
