I have low cortisol levels in the morning but it goes up for the rest of the day and by 10:00 PM, I am wide awake.

I am taking the Standard Process Hypothalamex and I’m waiting for an adrenal liquid that they had to special order. I will be taking 1 tsp twice a day. I hope it will help me soon. I am eating clean and not exercising after 2:00 PM. I am also making chamomile tea 1 hr before bedtime, which is @ 9:30 PM.

Thank you for your web site. It is very interesting.

What about an above average free cortisone?

    If you have normal free cortisol you maybe metabolizing cortisol into cortisone at a faster rate

    I can’t give specific treatment advice without reviewing results and your overall health, this is done through a consultation. Did you have the results reviewed by your practitioner as they should be able to give you a treatment plan as they will have all of your health information.

What does it mean when a 24 hour saliva cortisol test shows low cortisol across the board but the ditch free cortisol shows high as well as high metabolites.? tests were done on the same day about the same times. I understand if free is low on both but metabolites high but mine show the opposit results on free cortisol.

    I find that when I use to run the saliva adrenal test that results would almost always be low, which is why I stopped doing them and switched to the DUTCH test. With the DUTCH results they will be more consistent as they are assessing results over the previous couple of hours
