ACTH Stim question
I had an ACTH stim test today (started at 11:00). My endo says I have no adrenal issues, but I thought it was supposed to double if your adrenals are healthy.

10:50am CORTISOL 21.0 mcg/dl [5.0-25.0]

11:50am CORTISOL *30.6 mcg/dl [5.0-25.0]

Some doctors look for a doubling, some look for a certain threshold which is like 28 or so.

Passing the stim test if you have low tests and other tests like low sodium etc. may mean that your adrenals still may react to stress but maybe not for long...
