My son recently test with a low cortizol level....AM-3 PM- 0.9. He also has many other abnormal test results. I've been convinced that he has some type of immune dysfunction, possibly connected to his autism. Can low cortizol levels be caused by things other than Addison's disease? Is an endocrinologist the best person to see? As of right now, our nutritionist is handling this with supplements of mag. and sodium(he was alarmingly low in these, amongst others). I should also mention that he has a high ammonia and aluminum. Also, low carnatine, calcium, iron.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
