    Cool Adrenal Issue or Other?

    For starters, I did another Saliva Test recently. Results below.
    Then, I went to a new endocrinologist who gave me a list of blood aka serum lab tests to do and do not have results back yet. Does anyone have any idea what is causing cortisol to be so low? I have alternating high and low blood pressure, with orthostatic hypotension, also. And, intermittent blurry vision. I had a 24hr catecholomines with midrange mets and normets, not high enough for a Pheo. Any clues what is going on with me?
    Saliva Test Results
    Morning cortisol was low 2.6 in 3.7-9.5 morning range
    Noon cortisol was bottom of range 1.2 in 1.2-3.0 noon range
    Evening cortisol was low .5 in .6-1.9 evening range
    Night cortisol was .8 in .4-1.0 night range
    DHEA was low 1.3 in 2-23 age dependent range. Age 63
    Estradiol 1.0 in .5-1.7 Postmenopausal range (optimal 1.3-1.7)
    Progesterone 36 in 30-300 oral prog supplement 100-300
    Ratio pg to e2 36 low in 100-500 range

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Is your doc worried about the numbers? I can say that from where I live and the clinics around me they would not consider those numbers super low. When I have my levels done they are 0.0.
    Have they done the special blood test that shows the wave of cortisol in the AM for you yet? My doc won't even do the saliva thing. I have always heard that it is not a good test at all.
