... I am by no means an expert and am still trying to figure this out for myself but I also did read that an ACTH of less than 10 with a low cortisol level is diagnostic of Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency due to a pituitary problem. ... (29 replies)

... My endro. Dr. is sending me for another ACTH test in May. I wonder how that can be accurate, if I am taking the cortef. Will the results be normal because of the replacement? ... (13 replies)

... I have an appt. with my Endo. Dr. in May. I am on 20 mg. Cortef for Adreanal Insuf. My doctor wants me to have an ACTH test before I come in for my May visit. I have a question....if I am on Cortef, how will I get a valid test result? ... (2 replies)
... Keraly and group, I found a new endo who is supposed to be good. After I suggested it, we decided to test Aldosterone, Renin and Antiadrenal antibodies. Here's what he came back with (remember I'm the one with low DHEA, low BP, high ACTH and Stim Test that came back less than perfect): Antiadrenal Antibody screen: negative Aldosterone: 1 ng/dL (Range-Upright...

... Let me know how Travis' appt goes at Mayo. I'm only 1.5 hours away from Rochester and that's my last resort if I can't get it figured out here. What did his ACTH and Cortisol number look like? ... (9 replies)
... Thanks for your help. I've always heard that Cortisol should double too. However, I've read that endos feel that anything over 20 is good, except that that is where mine started. My ACTH has ranged from 45-62 (Range 5-27) much HIGHER than normal. My DHEA-S is pathetic but the endo (supposedly a top doc) says there's nothing wrong with my adrenals. I tried to explain that...

... Van, I'll comment on what tests I've had done. Renin, Plasma Acitvity: .2 (.4-4.5) Had this done post-BLA and mine is way high. ACTH, Plasma 427 (5.0-60.0) This is a VERY high result. 11-Doexycortisol, Serum 6662 (20-130) Never had this one, looks like your doctor was looking for congenital adrenal hyperplasia, probably late onset 11-Deoxycortisol, Serum LC/MS/MS...

... Hi Chris! Well, I didn't feel anything during the testing but when I got home I noticed I had pretty nasty hand tremors, a pounding headache and sore muscles. I got kind of worked up yesterday, so maybe it was really from all of the stress associated with blood testing and doctors this week. I guess I was more worried (illogical, I know) that my test would be normal... (7 replies)
... uations. My endo diagnosed me with hypogonadism as my LH and FSH levels were both below normal..and my testosterone was ridiculously low. There was no baseline ACTH on the sheet. ... (2 replies)

... l antibody test for autoimmune, he told me there was no such thing. I also found out from NADF that i didnt need to be taken off the HC in the first place as the ACTH test could have been done while on the HC as long as the endo gave me dexamethasone as cortisol relacement while i was being tested. ...

... thanks so much for your response. i'm supposed to be getting a call from my endo later today, and i will ask her about that test. are there any other tests that i should get done? is there a blood test for anti-adrenal antibodies? (5 replies)
... Hi again Tracy, I was doing more research today online and ran across a site about aldosterone testing, which made me think of Travis. Didn't you say at one point that you had increased the salt in his diet to try to see if it helped him feel better? I read that a very salty diet would be one cause of a low score on an aldosterone test. Now of course, I'm not sure... (2 replies)
