So I had bloods taken yesterday morning at 8am for something else, then this morning I received a call (on a saturday!!!!) from my Gp telling me that my bloods showed low cortisol levels. I take my daily pred at lunch time and also hadn't had my daily symbicort so no steroids atall for over 10 hours, could this be the cause?
I have had low morning cortisol levles before while on pred (but not this low), does pred cause low blood results, as I always thought while on pred cortiosl levels should be ok.
My doc is now writing to my cons to tell him about the blood results. My cortisol levels were 14 nmol/L
Has anyone else had this happen
