Customer Question

I have bee diagnosed with pheochromacystoma which causes my BP to spike and tachycardia and subsequently it causes low BP and bradycardia. This happens out of the blue always while in a resting position ie laying around or sitting. That along with systemic sarcoidosis diagnosis. My specialist suggested surgery to remove tumor on my adrenaline gland Hensel the pheochromacystoma presents greater risk than good. My question : in your opinion would adrenal support supplements help as they claim cortisol and tiredness. I am 62 yo former health enthusiasts and newlywed. I do take supplements with good results.

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
No I would not recommend any supplements.
In fact, some of those supplements might make things worse by stimulating the adrenal glands
Your adrenal function needs to be monitored closely after surgery and you may need supplements then but definitely not before
