Hi all, i'm new to these boards
I was wondering if anyone here has been diagnosed with secondary or tertiary Addison's? My primary physician is convinced that this is what has been plaguing me for almost 5 years now. So she referred me to an Endocrinologist and I see him this afternoon. I am uncertain of what my current labs are, I only have my lab results from 2005.
AM Cortisol- 8.6 & 8.2 (ref range 6-22, taken 1 week apart)
ACTH 10 (ref range 10-60)
While Addison's disease certainly fits the profile of my symptoms... my labs (at least from back then) were still within the normal range. Although, low to low normal. But normal nonetheless. So I am wondering why they suspect Addison's? Unless my labs are now below normal? I guess I will find that out today. I was told that they will be running some kind of stimulation test/s. Can anyone share their experiences with those? I'm somewhat nervous
