I looked for a community on Addison’s disease or adrenal problems but unfortunately there isn’t one so I thought this community would be the best to ask this in!
I recently went to my doctors to ask him to carry out a Cortisol blood test as I have a lot of symptoms of both low and high but I thought I had high cortisol because I cannot lose weight at all and have more fat on my tummy than other areas and a lot of sugar cravings etc. However I was shocked when I was told my blood results showed that I have low cortisol levels. I am having them repeated next week.
Is it possible to not be able to lose weight even if I had Addison’s disease?
Could my next test show high cortisol?
Some input would be much appreciated! Thanks so much
