Possible Adrenal Insufficiency
Hi,
Just got back from a new Endo with my 18 year old daughter, Sarah.  In his file, he had labs that were ordered from her last Endo back in July when she was diagnosed with PCOS.  The lab values are as follows:
Cortisol, Random..................15.2
17 Hydroxyprogesterone..........14
Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate......71
Estradiol (E2)................................2.5
Free Test......................................0.7
% Free Test..................................0.3
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin........201
Test. Panel (Total)......................... 24
Progesterone Level........................<10
Prolactin.........................................6.89
Follicle Stim. Hormone Level.............1.1
Luteinizing Hormone.........................0.44
All of these levels except the Cortisol were abnormal.  The new Endo. repeated all of these tests today plus the ACTH Stim. Test.  We'll have results in 1-2 wks.  I really think we have finally found out why my daughter has been so sick for almost 3 years. and hospitalized a minimum of 75 times.
I'll keep you posted.

Lori (Sarah's mom)

What time was the cortisol test done? Cortisol can only be done at certain times of the day to be diagnostic - it cannot be a random test.

And without ranges, this is rather... not useful.

It sounds like she has a lot of androgen-type issues. Any imaging done?
