High cortisol levels are caused by adrenal problems or possible tumors found in the adrenals, pituitary, lungs, pancreas, etc....these are cortisol producing tumors....which cause cushings disease. Have you had a 24 hr urine cortisol test? How about a 24 hr dexamethasone test? These are the first steps to high cortisol test results.
Unfortunately adrenal disease can be found commonly with people who have thyroid disorders....they are all connected within the endocrine system. All those different lovely hormones!! lol
Stress will cause fluctuations of high cortisol....not constant high results. Very important to have proper testing done to rule out.
