Low Thyroid and Low Adrenal

A number of cases have been reported of individuals having signs of hypothyroidism with elevated TSH, and low free thyroxin concentration in conjunction with adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal hormone support resulted in normalization of thyroid function without any type of thyroid support. It is also reported by other researchers that patients with Addison’s disease or adrenal insufficiency also presented with hypothyroidism and became euthyroid following adrenal support.
