AM/PM Cortisol w/ACTH Serum
Hello,

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

ACTH 14.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?

Thank you.

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.
