Low Cortisol and low ACTH

I've had 3 Cortisol tests and they have been as low as February 2018 - <0.5 L, July 2018 0.7 L, September 2018 1L

September 2018
CORTISOL RESPONSE TO ACTH STIMULATION, SERUM CORTISOL
Baseline 1 L
CORTISOL RESPONSE
60 MINUTES 9 L

July 2018
ACTH, PLASMA <5 L

Doctor tells me that hes confused because both CORTISOL and ACTH are low so hes unable to give me a diagnosis. I'm on 20 MG of hydrocortisone..my pituitary is ok...MRI test came back with - small mass just 3mm and pituitary mildly enlarged. (Doctor says its ok)


So he says that he cant give me a diagnosis. Can anyone tell me if I should see another doctor or hes correct that with those numbers I cant have a diagnosis?

Thank you
