... or get the test on your own through a lab on the net. It could be that your cortisol is very high in the morning and bottoms out the rest of the day. I have read that this is quite common before the adrenals completely fail. ... (4 replies)

... Can anyone tell me does an ACTH test that is higher than normal at 7:00 AM mean anything? Here are the blood test results: ACTH - 90 (reference range: 9 - 52) Cortisol - 23 (reference range: 5-25) I was told by a doctor that the high ACTH doesn't mean anything. If that's the case, I don't understand why he ordered it and why it has a reference range of 9... (3 replies)

... I think your stim test results indicate a possible secondary Addison's- which is due to pituitary insufficiency of ACTH. Your baseline ACTH, which comes from pituitary gland in brain, is low.

... Hi. Can I get a second opinion on my last set of labwork? The DO says normal but I have been having all the symptoms that keep leading me back to adrenal problems, probably secondary. Test Results - Blood draw at 8 am. Extra painful as the needle slipped while swapping tubes. cortisol random: 7.5 ug/dL Range: 4.0 - 22.0 ug/dL DHEA, unconjugated: 270 ng/dL ... (0 replies)
... I'm skeptical of anyone claiming to be an expert until they prove they know something. Often I pretend to have no knowledge and then ask simple questions I already know the answer to.

... Perhaps you need to ask to be referred to an endocrinologist? You can't always be assured of getting a good one, but at least he/she should know more about the ACTH stim test, and be able to justify it to your insurance company. Does this sound plausible?
