Exclamation Test Results **I'm confused**

Two days ago I went in for the ACTH blood test....my doc was concerned with my extremely low BP, fatigue, headaches, dizzyness, concentration loss...among some other things.

He ordered the test above, and an MRI....the MRI was done this saturday a.m. results are likely to come in this week for the scans.

I'm going to display my results, can someone help me understand them

My baseline draw was done at 9 a.m.
Sodium 141
Potassium 4.2
Chloride 107
CO2 27
Glucose, Random 77
BUN 13
Creatinine 0.6
Calcium 9.5

ACTH injection was done and then the timer was set for 30 min & 60 min

@ 30 min
Cortisol 30m post challenge 20.2

@ 60 min
Cortisol 1h post challenge 22.3


Can someone shed a little light here?

Re: Test Results **I'm confused**

When was your blood draw done? Do you not have a baseline cortisol level?
