Diagnosed today

Well I could'nt stand it any longer, I called to see if results were back from my test.
The nurse said before the injection my cortisol level was 8.5, then one hour after injection the cortisol level was 12.7 The office is very busy and she said we would talk more my next appointment, in 3 months! Her diag. was Primary Adrenal Insufficiency, considering I have been diag. with Hasimoto's hypothyroid and primary hypogonadism, would that not be considered Polyglandular Disorder or Schmidts? Anyway, I start on a low dose of Prednisone tomorrow, 5mg

Re: Diagnosed today

you haven't posted anything in awhile... just wondering if you're feeling any better since starting the Prednisone?

I hope you are well..
