THE MICROBIOME PRE AND PRO BIOTICS

Dr John Honour who is an eminent steroid biochemist, gave a very enlightening talk at our June 2017 meeting about how the gut can alter the metabolism of steroids and how this action can affect the absorption of the steroid, particularly steroids which get into the small bowel. He explained how the balance of gut bacteria can be affected by steroids. At our October meeting as a follow-on, Jacqui Mayes who is a registered Nutritional Therapist, spoke about gut bacteria and what in our diet helps good bacteria survive in their struggle with bacteria which are not helpful to us.

GETTING CORTISOL REPLACEMENT OPTIMAL IN ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCY

The major goal of cortisol replacement in patients with adrenal insufficiency is to mimic as closely as possible, the normal pattern of cortisol production known as the circadian rhythm. The reason why we try to achieve this, is primarily to minimise side effects of over and under replacement and promote improved overall health. The two key factors are understanding the circadian profile and the pharmacology of hydrocortisone. This article covers several presentations from our group meetings and we now share this with you to gain better understanding of cortisol replacement
