Customer Question

I think I have hypoadrenalism along with kidney disease. I am having trouble getting a diagnosis from the Doctors. If I knew for sure what I have I would choose to use natural treatment If possible. The first appointment that I could get with an Endochrinologist is in January. of next year. All the other Doctors have danced around a diagnosis.
Could I just come there for a diagnosis.
Thank you for your help. Faye ******

This is not a practice.

We do not diagnose or treat.

Your regular doctor can order simple tests as follows

1. 24 hour urine for free cortisol. If that is normal, you don't have hypoadrenalism.

2. Renal function panel, a blood test.

3. Urinalysis.

That is all you need to rule out these concerns.
