    Post What is the difference between Addison's and CAH?

    My dr told me on 3 separate occasions she thought I have CAH even though the blood test for AM cortisol came back in normal range (lower part of range mind you). 17-OH came back low part of normal, but testosterone came back extremely high for female, actually in the normal range for adolescent male. I've been dx'd with hypothyroid and reactive hypoglycemia both of which I understand can be related to adrenal insufficiency. I am not on any adrenal support meds, but seems like I should be because of symptoms. Now I wonder is it CAH I have, or could it be Addison's or Cushings? What's the difference?
