Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

Thank you for your question.

I would strongly recommend, that with your symptoms, you should have a blood test for cortisol.

Low levels of cortisol in the body can lead to the symptoms that you are having.

I would strongly suggest that you have this test done.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

If your thyroid hormone was normal, you must have your cortisol level checked.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thanks cortisol is a blood test?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

Yes it is a blood test.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

Online prescriptions are not valid unfortunately.

In other words if I give you a script for something, it is not going to work in UK as I am not licensed there.

Even if I were licensed in the UK I would not have been able to prescribe something online as it is not legal or possible.

Sorry for the late response.

There is an over the counter weight loss medication that you can use that comes by the name of xenical or orlistat.

You can try using that.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

You have not been charged for the phone call.

For any issues related to payment please contact customer support.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

It is the same thing.

Adrenal test and cortisol test is the same thing.

Cortisol is a hormone that is released by the adrenal gland.
