I finally got my test results back. They are as follows:

[U]Aldosterone[/U]
6 ng/dL (normal: 28 ng/dL)

[U]Cortisol[/U]
Before injection: 26.10 UG/DL (normal: 6.7-22.6)
30 minutes after injection: 37 UG/DL
60 minutes after injection: 43.7 UG/DL

[U]Estradiol[/U]
<20 PG/ML (normal for nonpregnant females 24-273 PG/ML; for postmenopausal women 20-88 PG/ML)

[U]17-Hydroxyprogesterone[/U]
<8 ng/dL (normal for nonpregnant females: 185-285 ng/dL; for postmenopausal women: 45 ng/dL)

[U]ACTH, plasma[/U]
Before injection: 10 pg/mL (normal: 5-27 pg/mL)
30 minutes after injection: 7 pg/mL

Testosterone, sodium, potassium, chloride, CO2, nitrogen, creatinine, glucose, calcium, androstenedione, renin, prolactin, luteinizing hormone, DHEA-Sulfate, follicle stimulating hormone, and progesterone are all within normal range.

My thyroglobulin levels were 21 IU/ml, but no normal range was posted.

I don't understand how my cortisol levels can be high and aldosterone levels low....also my estrogen and hydroxyprogesterone levels are worrisome to me. Also, why would my ACTH levels drop after being injected???
