Hi im new on here. I suffer from hashimotos thyroiditis and have been having yearly short synacthen tests for the past 3years. I had just a 9am cortisol done two weeks ago and the result was 171. Before having the test I had to convince the endo to do it as I previously had been told by others in his team that it should be yearly monitored to which he didn't think necessary! So he did it and upon requesting my results I asked again if I could have the SST and he responded by saying my 9am cortisol was probably ok but yes he will arrange for SST. Is 9am cortisol result of 171 rather low?
many thanks in advance
