Lowering cortisol

Posted by Lushkins on March 18, 2005, at 12:23:58

Just got some blood results back from my PDoc. Everything is bang in the normal range apart from cortisol which is very very high. I know this is the "stress hormone" and that I probabily need to chill out some but was wondering if there is anything I can do in terms of diet or supplements. Cutting back on caffine and sugar comes to mind, but I was hoping there may be something else I can do. He said that I could go on some type of steroids but he didn't want me to beacuse that can really change a person in many ways. He is also pleased with my progress since increasing lamictal from 150mg to the magic 200mg which so many people on various boards find relieve. But while this has relieved some depression the anxiety is still there and I think this is mainly caused by too much cortisol.

Thanks Lushkins
