What was your morning cortisol when diagnosed?

I have the ACTH test and a 24 hour urine scheduled, but it will be weeks before I receive results.  My morning cortisol level was 4.4.  The lab normal range started at
4.6 so just barely below normal.  I have extremely low BP, weight loss and other symptoms.  I am just curious is others were close to low normal or off the charts in their morning cortisol.  Thanks.

It takes many tests to get diagnosed, and I hope the doc is also running antibodies and electrolytes as well. The stim test is usually the last test.
