Hi, I would appreciate the help immensely, I'm desperate. I didn't know that cortisol had to be measured at 8 am (docs didn't tell me it had to be that way.....goes to show how much they know and take me seriously) but i've now had cortisol drawn 2 times at 8 am. 1st time was 12 and 2nd time was 14.5 (8-25 range). I also had my stim test at almost 9am as they did not tell me it had to be at 8. The results were
ACTH- 27 (10-57)
cortisol- 8 (7-25)
30 min- 20.8
60 min- 25
is it ok? i know i had a post about it listing other symptoms and results but i wanna focus on the cortisol and stim tests, because i didn't know the time had to be 8 am. does it matter if my stim test was closer to 9? also, it was a month after i stopped birth control, and about a month after i FINALLY got cured of a three month bout of tonsillitis (yikes). Does that matter at all?
