    Cortisol Stim Test then Acth test ?

    I was just wondering what comes after a cortisol stim test for diagnosing Addison's Disease ?

    I had 2 Cortisol stim tests done one in the afternoon and one in the early morning .

    Afternoon test read 2.8 out of 5-15
    Morning test read 3.8 out of 5-25 Both low

    Do i now have a Acth test done to see if its the adrenals glands or Pituatary or Hythalamus Producing such low cortisol ?

    I have abdominal cramping , hot flashes , constipation . tired , weak and major weight loss 35 + pounds in 8 months .

    Seeing a endocrine Doctor right now at mass general Hospital . Sorry for poor Spelling

    I had to have the ATCH test done at the hospital. Then I had to have a cat scan of the brain and a MRI also. I had exactly the same systems as you except I had massive bleeding under my skin which would break open and bleed for days. I also was blacking out quite a lot.

    I am feeking 80% better now then I have in years. It's a slow process to get diagnosed, but you will feel so much better.

    Good luck and hopefully goes faster for you then it did me.
