Need help understanding ACTH test
 
Hello. My endocrinologist said that, after reviewing all my symptoms and looking at a cortisol test from a couple of months ago, he was certain I had adrenal fatigue. My cortisol level in April was 9.1 taken at 8:00 in the morning while fasting. He sent me for ACTH test to confirm yesterday. I got a call from his office this afternoon saying my results are back. He said I'm fine and don't need to come back in to see him. Here are my results:

Baseline: 10.7
30 minutes: 20.1
60 minutes: 25.4

I disagree with the doctor. I am certain something is wrong. I took Dr. Wilson's quiz, anything over 132 was likely adrenal fatigue and I scored 175.

I'm looking for any advice or input. Do these results look normal? Thank you so much in advance.
