Hi, MamaGrok. It was good to see you come back around fairly recently and I hope you're continuing to do well. I've been wanting to ask you what exactly do you and the doc feel happened that caused your issues with the DHEA, and how were you able to determine this. I'm dealing with pretty extreme adrenal issues (and of course the dead thyroid that accompanies it after years of it) and we are playing around with, at my request in order to avoid/delay hydrocortisone, the use of pregnenolone, DHEA and DIM - alternating days. I'm just curious as to what may have happened with all that you had going on at the time. There are many things in your postings to which I can relate and I'm always trying to gather info and learn from the experiences of others when possible. I've taken the DHEA in the past (7 Keto) and felt great with it but eventually stopped as my estrogen level rose a bit too much and I was a little paranoid about messing with my hormones at the time. I'm a little nervous now, but don't want to take steroids unless we've exhausted other avenues that might prove helpful and get me back to work.
Life is not a matter of having good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.
