I recently posted my acth stim results. Here are my other results.
About 2 weeks ago:
AM Cortisol 19.x
ACTH 34 HIGH OUT OF RANGE
PM Cortisol 4.x
(That's from memory, as I handed my records over to one of my docs to get it scanned into my file, so I'll have that back in a while.)
That is during my unusual insomnia problem where I can't fall asleep without intervention. My ACTH and cortisol is usually pretty crummy, low-normal. Why did my cortisol and acth go up so much? It was about 3 weeks after my stim test. Does it indicate anything?
Can you post it when you have the ranges - it is so hard to comment on just plain results... sorry...
Cortisol goes up and down all the time - and if you cycle, or have Cushing's, or just have test error etc. - it is just sometimes hard to catch the high results.
