Thanks for the responses. Thinking about it, though I would never go back on Isocort, I will say that I feel much more tolerant of loud noises, which were really jarring to me before the Isocort. And I ate gluten for three weeks this past month (every few days) with no obvious issues, something I’ve been trying to do for a year or more w/o success. Though I really can’t say that that’s due to Isocort, or to sleepign in a little later, or…

My doubt stems from the fact that the only sources I seem to EVER see cited are Dr. Wilson (Adrenal Fatigue author) and the Stop the Thyroid Madness site. And neither of them cite any medical studies, to my knowledge.

That combined with how unreliable saliva tests are (one practitioner stopped useing them when a client, who for some reason did three tests in one week, had three completely different results on each one); and how damaging high cortisol levels are, make advice to dose with cortisol seem dangerously trendy and reckless.
