it didn't give a range, said on the lab that "open to interprataion"
Taken at 8am so it seems it should be higher.
Suggested that sleep issues could be related to cortisol levels being high in the am and low in the morning... as such

Moose is right.it should have the draw times ranged.   There are 4 time periods usually listed.   In fact with aldosterone it even says if you tested laying or sitting.

I guess it was not low enough for them in the morning to warrant further investigation.
