Please help decipher my bloodtest results!

Cortisol - 5.6 (normal lab range is 3.1-22.4)

This is the only cortisol test the endo requested so far. Is this low? Should I have more tests, like the ACTH and the saliva test? Please respond and thank you!

Yep it's low for a morning cortisol, but cortisol cycles every 20 minutes or so and it's possible you hit a low point. So, this test didn't tell you anything really, but it did indicate a possible problem. You need to have an ACTH stimulation test and a blood test for prolactin. Those tests can narrow down a problem.
