    Low acth/Diabetes type 1


    I have diabetes type 1 but have been having alot of trouble with my glucose levels and have been getting really hypoglycemic. But very Hyperglycemia postparandial.

    My doctor has me on a insulin pump right now at a very low rate, and i do very small boluses at meals.

    They did some blood work and the only thing abnormal is my ACTH was< cortisol though was low normal.

    I had a ACTH stim test today. I have had 2 brain surgeries in the past for a brain tumor and i had radiation therapy on the head and neck. I was on oral Dexamethasone for both surgeries and radiation to cut down on the brain swelling totaling about 16 weeks. the first surgery was 2 years ago and so was the radiation. the second surgery was 6 months ago.

    Is there anything to be worried about? The only thing i have noticed after my ACTH stim test is my blood glucose it a bit higher.

    I meet with my doctor in a week to go over my results. I just wanted to know if anyone had any input on this topic. I hope this all makes sense.
