    Late night salivary cortisol 0.56 mcg/dL

    I had labs done to check my cortisol and other hormones, but the most significant thing I see is my cortisol. It was above reference from 7-9AM by a little bit, then way above for the 11AM-1PM. It dipped down to within reference for 3PM-5PM, but the late night from 10PM-12PM it spiked way up to 0.56 mcg/dL (reference says 0.03-0.14 mcg/dL is within limits). Is this pointing towards Cushing's or could it be purely from depression? I was treated for depression a year ago but maybe I still have lingering cortisol problems from that? I got this test for trouble sleeping which has consistently been every day for the past 3 years, so I feel like I finally know why, it's from having a cortisol spike every night.

    Also, my DHEA was normal, melatonin was normal but at the bottom of the reference on all measurements for day and night, and testosterone was normal, but at the bottom of reference for the late night reading.

    Basically, I am wondering if this late night cortisol typically means Cushing's.
