Thanks for replying, I have done some research and found that low cortisol can cause urine to concentrate hense taking 20 hours to concentrate, thus could still be diabetes insipidus masked my low cortisol. Thing is would asking gp for low dose vasopressin to see if that fixed DI symptoms make it harder to pinpoint ? cortisol?
I am concerned about asking for them to repeat random cortisol as they have been 'normal' apartform the last one which i have doubs about ist accuracy (if it doubled then it would have been alot lower than my others-at 281, or within range eg 500's maybe and not have doubled either way we dont know). And endo has said that we physically cant do the stim test as they cant cannulate or able to get the bloods off me-dehydration. What would you do as he is saying that this last cortisol constitutes a stim test? I just dont want to push them too hard as its taken 4 years to get this far and i have tried to sort of direct him but that just puts his back up and holds things up. Thanks.
