Gravesí Disease And Cushing Syndrome
Posted 06 October 2020 - 01:24 PM
I have not been on this site in years, seems I have contacted new issues. Does anyone here have issues with Cushing’s syndrome or polycythemia, I am having large issues with this and wondered if there is a link to graves.

My, admitedly non medical, opinion is that these things are all linked at some level. Both the thyroid and adrenal glands are often described as the major orchestrators of our metabolism. The thyroid because thyroid hormone levels are intrinsically linked with energy production and the adrenals because they seem to compensate if thyroid hormones stay too low or too high for too long. The glands need to work together, and an imbalance in one area may have negative effects in the other.

Out of curiosity, how were you diagnosed with these things? I imagine that an endocrinologist ran a series of blood tests?

If you haven't yet, try doing a search here for anything that comes up with the Adrenals and Thyroid. This forum is from 2008(?). We are missing more of the forum from since 1999 when it crashed in 2008 and the data was lost. Back then I recall having seen much things being said about the Adrenals and the need to support them alongside with the thyroid to be able to heal.
So yes, to answer your question, there is the link you are asking about.
