ACTH Stim Test

I just did a full work up of blood for issues i got going on, they ruled out a few things but im still questioning things...

Cortisol
7:30 - 10.2
8:00 - 18.1
8:30 - 21.6

They were worried since it still doubled in value but it was below 15 to start, The ranges go from over 20 base line to start is normal but needs to double...

Im not sure what else to ask... just input please?

i can post the rest of my blood work if needed, i have tons of it...

Re: ACTH Stim Test

I would ask for a trial prescription for hydrocortisone based on your low baseline cortisol.

Morning cortisol levels should be the highest, maybe 20 - 30. After getting 1000x the normal stimulation your adrenal glands could ever make, you only maxed at a good morning cortisol level.
