    any exogenous steroid given long enough can kill your adrenal gland.........this is why exogenous steroids are a double edge sword. As a neurosurgeon I deal with steroids probably more than any other specialty......and they are powerful drugs that can do good and very bad things if you dont know how to use them.

          I have asthma - and in the past (pre-paleo) I've tried to function w/o the inhaled corticosteroids... and just abuterol and atrovent - but when I do I end up w/ either bronchitis or pneumonia... is there a chance I'll ever be able to get off the stuff? I have the hardest time breathing during spring/fall, even when 100% paleo (no dairy, to include ghee) due to all the allergies (I really need to figure out how to do my job and Live in either Aspen, Sun Valley, or Tahoe!) I want to kick this crap to the curb - the problem is every time I've made an attempt I end up in the hospital. I'm thinking that now that I'm 100%primal or 95%paleo most of the time (no cheats) that once my labs say I'm optimal I can ditch the meds... in your practice have you ever had a life long asthmatic come off all their meds 100%????
          I have asthma too. I took Advair for 4 years, and when I heard about the black box warning on it, switched to Asmanex for the next 2 years. Those controlled it completely - I didn't need to use albuterol at all. With testing, my cortisol was sky high, so with my doc's permission, I stopped the Asmanex in August. I haven't had to use a rescue inhaler at all since then.
          Last Thursday, I came down with a virus. Clogged up head and nose, headache, swollen glands, and I went to bed with a temp of 103. It went even higher that night, because I was burning up. I was kind of nervous, wondering if I would have trouble breathing, but no. My lungs were fine. The fever was finally gone this morning, I still have a slightly sore throat, but my breathing is still great.

          We're coming into our worst time for air pollution here - January to March. So this will be the real test for me. I'll tell you how I do.

                  Possibly you have in mind some very large doses.
                  Normal MD's are usually using either whopper or nothing.

                  Would you say the same if it was about this type of doses?

                    You are clearly in the process of healing......your HS CRP and ferritin are elevated because of systemic inflammation but all your other labs are showing signs of coming back to allostasis. Keep doing what your doing. I think you E2 is up because of your body fat but it is not driving your DHT levels too high. With your rev T3 levels you will have an intracellular T3 deficiency because it block the thyroid receptors........your T level is awesome and your lipid rpofile rocks. I think you need more green tea to block aromatase naturally. Your Vitamin D level also will help that as does CO. I love your TG level cause it tells us your are doing your diet well. Particle A is awesome too......If I were you I would be proud. I would tell you that your low albumin and SHBG are likely not accurate die to your increase body weight........those I would trend. I also think your serum osm tells me your posterior pituitary is not yet optimal. I bet your renin angiotensin system and aldosterone systems also off because of it......but I think no worries since you are a man in transition. If you had a progressive doc there are thinks you can do to push the envelop but that has to be discussed with a doc. Your IGF -1 for an obese man is rockstar good.......I would push your HIIT for sure Jon. But make no mistake you are still very LR but there is a lot of good news on those labs.........I am proud of you for changing your life. You will soon reap major rewards. I do think your HCG is part of the reason for some of these labs being what they are.

                      Would you say the same if it was about this type of doses?

                      Jan......Terry's book is very general in his recs clinical medicine requires a lot more work......we do a lot more hacking than we can do in a book forum because he is trying to generalize results to make a larger point to the lay public........one can get addison's from small doses over two week periods if the right context is present.......it rarely is clinically but I have seen it develop in those who tinkered in the wrong way. Last person was a HA female.......not good. Neurosurgeons see a lot of bad things from steroids and it does not always require massive doses.........go look up CPM and fast correction of sodium........big sodium changes occur in head injuries, alcoholics, diabetics, when the use of any amount of steroids is contemplated........CONTEXT JAN can be a bitch.

                        They didn't test it. i gave another sample today, so they could test it.. they just said start antibiotics and i said uhm... NO since of all the thing it could be only 2 are actually treatable by antibiotics AND i am not ruining my gut for CW
                        its probably nothing to worry about......and I would not treat it without symptoms......the antibiotics for UTI's are big time B vitamin and folic acid blockers......and they disrupt K2 recycling due to gut dysbiosis.

                        • Looking at your ferritin and HS CRP I told you long ago your reset would take longer because of the inflammation you likely have......well your labs make me a prophet.......but your hormones and pituitary response tell me you have little to worry about long term because they are already working well even in the face of inflammation so once the HS CRP gets below 0.5 youre body comp will really take off. You should expect stalls because of the lack of intracellular T3.......I expect your TSH to be lower than you expect because of the D3 effect in the pituitary when you are losing weight. All your stalls are due to LR effect on the thyroid. You need to read some of the latest comments I made on the last leptin blog in the comment section. They tell you why your are experiencing what you are right now...........

                          • But your path is spot on and you are progressing well. Keep up the good work and just follow your inflammation.......as it falls your spirits will rise and your weight will drop.

                                Low albumin levels can suggest liver disease. Other liver enzyme tests are ordered to determine exactly which type of liver disease.

                                Low albumin levels can reflect diseases in which the kidneys cannot prevent albumin from leaking from the blood into the urine and being lost. In this case, the amount of albumin or protein in the urine also may be measured (see microalbumin).

                                Low albumin levels can also be seen in inflammation, shock, and malnutrition.

                                Low albumin levels may be seen with conditions in which the body does not properly absorb and digest protein, such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease, or in which large volumes of protein are lost from the intestines.

                                It would help to know what is your protocol and problems.
                                I remember that you are overweight.

                                high insulin, if you combat that, half of the battle is won, you are eating right, but how do you sleep?
                                low albumin--liver problems, crohn's, celiac?
                                use less thyroid hormones supplementation, aim at TSH(0.5-1.5), that should lower your RT3 some
                                you have already little high progesterone and DHEAs is about good enough,
                                but
                                your corisol is low (we can't increase preg/prog)
                                you may need HC, hydrocortisone (up to 40mg/day divided) or easier to take once/day 6mg Medrol


                                your homocysteine is high
                                your laboratory range for homocysteine is too grenerous
                                that is a big project read this and both pages and apply:
                                Homocysteine Reduction - 2 - Homocysteine, TMG, Zinc, SAMe - Life Extension Health Concern
