Have you been diagnosed with either or are you just asking. Just wondering because I have all of the things you mentioned and type 1 diabetes. Corn is not a problem though.
What adrenal suplements are you taking. If they are just herbal then you are much better of. If you are using corticoid steroids like Prednisone or Cortisone AC then the chances are that you your blood glucose levels will become harder to control without more treatment.Thanks so much for responding to my entry. I had blood work 2 summers ago that indicated I was low insulin. I've been on adrenal and thyroid supplements for 11 years. I have a meter,mostly just because I wanted to know what my blood sugar level was. It used to be really low 40-50 before I was on the low insulin diet. Now I run 90-120 OR when I'm stressed or angry sometimes 140 or higher. When I take an additional adrenal supplement meant for a crash (so says the local health food store) I'm usually feeling better within 24 hours.
It's the corn ingestion that I don't understand. According to my diet, corn is one of the many foods which i can't eat but sometimes it's really hard to avoid. I had to give up Mexican food because of it and I really LOVED Mexican food.
Actually, I'm using supplements because when I noticed i had no energy my doctor at the time never did a referral or any blood work, so I saw a nurse outside my health plan. She went with the Progena company at the time. A local chiro with a store carries the brand. My adrenal supplement is complicated concerning the contents and I don't want you to have to read a bunch of ingredients BUT the thyroid contains: thyroid tissue/adrenal tissue/pituitary tissue/thymus tissue/spleen tissue/kelp. I guess I should count my lucky stars, huh? I am also concerned about my personality ups and downs. Some days I feel that I have a great sense of humor while other days I just don't have the energy.What adrenal suplements are you taking. If they are just herbal then you are much better of.

if i were you I would go and ask my Doctors to run a full cortisol screen including an ACTH tolerence test. If you really have adreanal problems over the counter supplements won't do what you really need to feel better. I take 200 mcg of synthroid for my thyroid and 5.0 mg of prednisone and .05 mg of fludrocortisone and 25 mg of DHEA for my adreanals
