Kind of asthma related as I probably wouldn't be in this boat otherwise.. have an urgent endo appointment next week and had my bloods done Monday so that I could get results at appointment. Just found two missed calls from endocrinology doc on my phone asking me to ring them asap - never a good sign lol.
So my 9am cortisol was 11 (and should be 5-600). He was mighty relieved to discover Im already taking 5mg of pred in the morning and was really rather keen to impress the importance of me continuing to do so until appointment. He said after the appointment I will be seen by the specialist nurse to discuss plans, emergencies, and transition to hydrocortisone. I kind of expected them to diagnose SAS but quite shocked at how low my cortisol was, no wonder Ive felt so ill. Hopefully this will be the start of feeling better and getting some weight back on
