Have some test results. Adrenocorticotropin in mid March: 9.3 In April: acth 5.5, cortisol 14.8. In May had stim test: baseline 13.9, 30 minute 25.85, 60 minute 20.1.
I have an appt. with specialist at University of Iowa in mid August, hoping to get some answers then.
Anyone else have results similar to this or know how to interperate them?
You almost doubled your base - so it really depends on how your doc sees this... the drop at the end stayed in range but it is supposed to keep rising, not drop - so your doc is going to have to really think about if you *really* passed or if they need to keep an eye on or if they fail you now.
It looks so borderline to me, a layman - the doc may go either way as a wait and see or a treat. Depends on if the doc is conservative or not.
Keep us posted - it will be interesting to see how the doc sees this.
