My GP is unfortunately not working with me on my deteriorating health.
I am bedbound and use a wheelchair due to many issues but I have felt really ill lately and a GP friend suggested I have a morning cortisol test done which came back low at 137nmol/L
Although the lab said it was OK. It was a private test in the UK.
As a result of this, the same retired GP friend said to have a 9:00 am ACTH blood test done and the result was 17ng/L.
Range <50. GP friend says it should be higher than 47.
He said that because of my symptoms and this tesult, I have secondary Addison's.
Does anyone think that could be true? My own GP doesn't want to know.
