Susan, I don't know what I take that would affect cortisol.
I take two CCBs for blood pressure. ACE inhibitors and ARBs
have no effect on my BP, so aldosterone likely isn't
The fish old in question is Carlson's Norewegian Salmon Oil,
and the problems appeared to begin soon after I went from
one capsule a day to two. But that could just be
coinidence. Of course I will go back to one a day, then
back to two a day, and see what happens, but I was just
curious whether anyone else had had such a problem with this
I just had to stop taking it again; had symptoms of increasing low and
trouble with sleep.
PB, you should ask your pharmacist what you're on that is metabolized by and either activates or inhibits the CYP450 enzyme pathway. Many supplements will lower cortisol, too, not just fish oil.
Or just exhausted adrenals from some kind of stress in his life. And sub clinically we may all be suffering exhausted adrenals. Think of the number of people we know who need a cup of coffee or a long shower to kick start the day. Before looking at meds I would go the easy route and try to normalise the adrenals. i.e. minimising stress wherever possible, exercising (even when you feel like crap, smaller meals (especially lowered carbs) but more often. I have to put a plug in for my brewer's yeast smoothie here ;) Its one of the things I was told to have along with high doses of vitamin C (the powdered form) and to make a big effort to to have positive thoughts. Negativity can be very crippling.
