    High Serum Cortisol

    Hi,
    I had my Serum Cortisol measured and it's come out at 683 nmol/L (24.75 g/dL) for a 4PM reading.
    I have gained about 4 stone in a year and have a pot belly, no stretch marks though. Incredible fatigue, a really foggy spaced out feeling and just a general malaise all the time. I have bone pain as well.

    Just wondered what anyone thought.
    Thanks.

    P.S. thought I'd mention that my Vitamin D is 9.7 nmol/L.

    Re: High Serum Cortisol

    Do you have the lab range for serum cortisol? That would put the 683 result in context. Your vitamin D result looks very low (possibly outside the range low). But the lab's range would be helpful here too. Vitamin D (which is actually a hormone) is essential for bone health as well as other aspects of health. Generally, you want to be at least mid-range for vitamin D. Many people who do not get adequate sun exposure need to take vitamin D3 supplements.

    Have you had your thyroid checked? Your symptoms could be caused by hypothyroidism.
