Need help in interpreting cortisol/DHEA saliva test

Hi!

Could someone help me in interpreting my saliva test results (Genova Diagnostics)? The results:

7AM-9AM 1.23 [0.27...1.18]
11AM-1PM 0.45 [0.10...0.41]
3PM-5PM 0.23 [0.05...0.27]
10PM-12AM 0.11 [0.03...0.14]

The DHEA level is out of range (too high) and so the ratio cant be calculated.


Thanks!!

Re: Need help in interpreting cortisol/DHEA saliva test

Well, to me it looks as if you have high Cortisol and high normal levels. With the combination of high DHEA I would say it looks like Cushing's Syndrome which is the exact opposite of Addison's.
