I have very low cortisol and DHEA (confirmed on saliva test) Dr sent me for 9am Cortisol test which came back at 376 (Range 100 - 400) I believe from what I have read that secondary adrenal insufficiency cannot be ruled out without Synacthen test. I had a short Synacthen test done in Feb 2012 (results normal) and I think Dr was loathed to do it again. I have printed out some guidelines for GPs which says that a patients presenting with symptoms especially hypoglaciema which is my main symptom should be tested. I feel so bad and have done since April that I was signed off sick last week.
