No all labs look great actually. Both my boys have Addison's disease so Im familar with these labs and your labs look just as they should.

Re: adrenal gland lab results need help!!!

Your comprehensive metabolic panel is almost identical to mine!

Your cortisol, depending on your lab, appears to be within normal limits.

In 2009, my AM Cortisol was 24.9. The normal range at that time was 4.3-22.4.

My MD believed that I was in an alarm resistance stage, which appears to be correct, because it's low now.
