“In your case, high cortisol may not only affect thyroid function but can also causes resistance to insulin, estrogen and progesterone. When cortisol is high, these hormones seem to lose their power and the body tries to compensate by raising their levels. It’s also a very odd phenomenon that high cortisol can trigger resistance to cortisol itself. In other words, the more cortisol you make, the more your body needs to make in order to get the same results. The combination of high cortisol, thyroid dysfunction and high insulin will little by little make an individual begin to store fat rather that use it for energy. Once your TSH normalizes, you should re-test to see what the baseline cortisol level in your body is.“
