Hey guys i’m 17 and my doc diagnosed me with yeast infection/ adrenal fatigue.
Here is my panel
Total T = 117 ng/dl (range is 350-970)
Estradiol = 5.6 pg/ml (range is 10-36)
Androstendione = 50ng/dl (range is 33-192)
DHEA = 336 ng/dl (range is 250-900)
LH = 1.4 mIU/mL (range is .4-7.0)
FSH = 4.0 mIU/mL (range is 2.6-11.0)
Cortisol = 9.1 MCG/DL (range is 6.7-22.6)
Prolactin = 3.3 NG/ML (range is 2.6-13.1)
TSH = 2.44 (range is .34-5.6)
T4 free= .70 (range is .60-1.10)
T4 total = 5.8 (range is 6.1-12.2)
T3 total= 108 (range is 87-178)
Progesterone = 23 ng/dl (range is 24-175)
I have been training while sick for months and this seems like the main reason for my crashing hormones.
I’m trying to take it easy but i am still boxing 5 days a week for 60-90 minutes intensely. Today i realized the seriousness of the situation, feeling like absolute shit at 3:10pm, then training 4:30-5:45, at the end of the workout i couldnt do my calisthenics, i stopped because i began to shiver despite hot weather (86 in the gym).
Should i take off from working out all together for a bit, reduce frequency of training or implement any techniques to stop the downward cycle?
1 -“Adren-all” adaptogen blend + adrenal concentrate
2 - Vitamin C - 2g
3 - Activite multivitamin
4 - joint support
5 - borage oil, fish oill
6 - extra b5
Any support is greatly appreciated.
*Edit - I’ve noticed i am putting on some fat in the abdomen despite training hard, following a paleo/ candida diet with 2500-3000 calories a day at 160lb 5"8. I also am having trouble putting on muscle (before this whole situation i put on muscle easy and had a dry look), now i also carry more water weight. I also feel much more sore than normal, lower back ache, easily made anxious/ surprised.
