So it was confirmed that I have secondary adrenal insufficiency the other week.
They did also look at Primary but my blood results have shown that it is down to the steriods taken for my asthma.
My cortisol level was again below 28 and unreadable but surprisingly my ACTH came back at 49. Renin was high.
It's got me wondering now if recovery may be possible however I've needed short courses of Prednisolone every year for the last few years and I've been on Prednisolone for over a year continually now.since I last went on it last year.
They're going to switch me to hydrocortisone if I can reach 7.5mg of prednisolone to replace the lack of cortisol and then keep Prednisolone for my asthma. . Respiratory haven't come up with their side of the plan yet.
Has anyone managed to recover from adrenal insufficiency with such a low cortisol amount?
