Hi there I had a short synacthen test and my 1st blood test showed normal cortisol but I had no change after having acth injection does this mean i have addisons disease. I am a type 1 diabetic for 26 years.
Hello... this probably would have better belonged in a new thread...
Your one was normal - and it appears you maybe passed? the ACTH stim test (it is hard to tell - I have no idea if you started at a normal level or not) absent other information, it is really hard to tell. People can flunk the tests if they are on the cusp, on the other hand, there can be other diseases that have similar symptoms. Did you have antibody testing, sodium, potassium and ACTH testing as well?
