Adrenal Fatigue

The Quick, Free Test for Hypothyroidism and Adrenal Fatigue

Posted by Miss Lizzy

Hi peeps,

Frequently, people ask how to test for hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue. Especially if they had labwork and the results said they were “fine”.  There is way to get immediate insight about possibly hypothyroidsim and adrenal fatigue without all the expensive lab work. By immediate, I mean today, this week. How? Check your body temperature!

Dr. Broda Barnes and Dr. James Wilson explain how to test thyroid and adrenals through body temperature precisely. Checking your body temp at 3pm (when the body is at it’s warmest) will give you quick insight. Here is what the temps mean (generally):

Low Temperature (below 98.4) means a possible low thyroid problem

Fluctuating Temperature (more than 0.2 degrees per day) means possible adrenal fatigue

Low and Fluctuating Temperature means low thyroid and adrenals

Use a good digital thermometer, or an old fashion glass thermometer for accuracy. With a glass thermometer, first shake down below 95 degrees for a proper reading (some of us are as low as 95 degrees before treatment!). Hopefully this will help you figure out if you need treatment.

    Hi Miss Lizzy,Thanks for all the work you put into this blog. I only recently discovered it in the last few days and it has been very informative.Re: taking body temperature at 3pm everyday, are there certain things we should be doing consistently at that time? I just wondered (and I may be completely wrong here) as I thought body temp is affected by things such as exercise and eating. What about after ovulation? I know that BBT rises after you've ovulated but does it affect normal body temp during the day?Thanks again!Cheers,Le

    Hi Le,Thanks, I am glad you find the site helpful! For taking body temp, from what I have read its best to do it (around 3 pm) but exercise or food could give you a false reading. Dr. Broda Barnes suggests taking the temp under the armpit for ten minutes, and trying to keep activity low during this time (which makes it easier if you just ran up a flight of stairs or drank a hot beverage). I wrote a more recent blog post about how to track body temp which will answer your questions (I think). But basically yes, Barnes says for women who are in child-bearing years should take their temp around the 2nd or 3rd day of their cycle. I hope that helps!http://misslizzy.me/blog/2011/4/19/how-important-is-body-temperature.html

    I'm so happy to find websites like this. At the moment I am in a terrible place. Inhave been hypothyroid since I was 7. I am now 31, treated with levothyroxine for all those years as it is all UK doctors will offer. Had many symptoms over the years but just lived with them and was always told it was nothing to do with my thyroid. After the birth of my daughter 6 years ago I got really ill, now ky hair is falling out, I am so weak, dry eyes, can't get up in mornings, anxiety attacks, pumping heart, tingling and numbness, so cold. I had enough and told doctors I was ordering NDT myself and starting treatment. I'm going it alone more or less because no doctors in UK treat with NDT. I had been on it 5 days, just 1/2 a grain and one day I took a whole grain. (Naturethyoid) Doctors told me to have bloods, told me not to take anymore as my stimulating hormone had gone right down to 0.2 it was 2.9, my T3 was 4.5. I tried to up my dose couple of daya ago to 1 whole grain and felt awful, anxious, flashes of heat, couldn't stay still, mind racing. I want NDT to work for me, and I want my life back, any suggestions would be so appriciated. P.S i didn't take my NDT the day of the blood test, and I am cureenting awaiting cortisol saliva test results. Should I just stick to 1/2 grain for now, I'm barly torrelating that! 🙁 kind regards Danielle, Your story gives me hope.

    What is the benefit of using iodine?

    According to healthyonline.com, the thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in the body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.

    Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. In addition, they are beneficial for:

    • Normal growth and development
    • Protein synthesis
    • Cholesterol synthesis
    • Carbohydrate absorption
    • Energy metabolism
    • Nerve and bone formation
    • Reproduction
    • The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
    • Speech and mental state
    • Cold hands and feet
