ABSTRACT: In patients of all ages, many disorders labeled as psychiatric may actually
be due to hormonal insufficiencies. For example, cortisol deficiency is rarely
taken into account in a medical or psychiatric work-up, so persons with mild
to moderate cortisol insufficiency are for the most part relegated to receiving a
psychiatric diagnosis when, in fact, the same disorder is represented. However,
the symptoms of cortisol insufficiency appear to closely parallel such psychiatric
disorders as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and addictions. There has
been some question of whether substance abuse causes a hypocortisolemic state.
In reviewing the literature and obtaining detailed histories of addicted patients,
it appears that childhood trauma, also known as “early life stress” (ELS), instead
may elicit a hypocortisolemic state. This leads some to self-medicate with an addictive
substance to quell the pain of a cortisol insufficiency, both physical and
emotional. In fact, the literature supports the concept that addictive substances
increase cortisol in predisposed patients. Patients with a variety of psychiatric
disorders including addictions were found to have signs and symptoms of mild or
moderate hypocortisolemia. Generally, an appropriate comprehensive examination
supported a diagnosis of cortisol insuffiency. For the most part, these patients
were succesfully treated with physiologic doses of bio-equivalent
hydrocortisone, along with replacement of any other deficient hormone. By correcting
underlying hormonal insufficiencies, many patients improved, with some
patients having a total reversal of psychiatric symptoms. It is therefore reasonable
to evaluate and treat hormonal insufficiencies with hormones prior to using
psychotropic medication.

Could cortisol insuffiency be what is making you relapse over and over, When you
want to stay sober? Could you ever get off of your psych meds and be OK, maybe even beter than ever.
