New to this and confused
I have been having trouble with low glucose, irratic heart beat and terrible cold intolerance for years. Finally got to see an endocrinologist, but she is so new that she had to call my insurance for instructions on administering the ACTH stim test. My results are in and she says totally normal. No need to return.
Baseline cortisol - 8.8
30 minutes post - 27.5
60 minutes post - 21.4.
I realize that the fact that they doubled is good. Is there any reason at all for me to be concerned about the low baseline? Two weeks prior, my am cortisol was 10.4. And my glucose is 63 without fasting. Should I take her advice and just keep feeling bad or get a second opinion?
