0.5 morning cortisol level

Well basically I haven't felt right for along time and am struggling with infertility. I am 28 years old. My drs. Have not really diagnosed or addressed any issues with my bloodwork but I recently was looking at it and found my morning cortisol level was 0.5 and from everything I've read this is very low and should be addressed. Any help, knowledge, advice would be greatly appreciated.

One test is not enough to diagnose but the doctor should do further tests.

It helps to test at different times like 8am and midnight (assuming the first one was an 8am fasting) and then other tests including a stimulation test can finalize the diagnosis and source (pituitary or adrenal). Sodium and potassium are critical if you have low cortisol as sodium dropping makes for a crisis.
