In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the reason why some people have low cortisol symptoms yet on a test, they have high levels of cortisol.

Low Cortisol Symptoms
• Inflammation
• Virus – Poor Immune System
• Skin Color Changes
• Salt Cravings

High Cortisol Symptoms
• Belly Fat
• High Blood Pressure
• Allergies
• Insomnia
• Thin Legs
• Acid Reflux
• Prediabetes

High levels of cortisol mobilize tremendous amount of sugar in the body. There is a condition called cortisol resistance where you have the adrenal gland that makes cortisol that sends signal to the receptor, but the receptor is downgraded and resistive which causes to not having the return communication to the gland. There will then be certain parts of the body that are completely deprived of cortisol and other parts of the body that have way too much of cortisol. This is the reason why you can have a combination of both low and high cortisol symptoms.
