Adrenal Insufficiency
 
Hello.
Is it mandatory to be completely off cortisol when taking a cortisol test?
Are there any cortisol tests that can be done to test for primary or secondary adrenal insufficiency when you are taking Prednisone?
Can the Adrenal Vein Sampling test verify an adrenal insufficiency and how severe? I know it is used for aldersterone, but it does rate cortisol also.
Can a cat scan of the adrenal gland verify or rule out primary adrenal insufficiency?
Can the urine cortisol test with blood testing work? I forgot what it is called, a curve or something.
Thank you to anyone who can help answer any of my questions.
