Hi all, just thought I'd pop by and let you know how my first appointment went. She basically dismissed thyroid as being the issue, even though my ranges for ft3 and ft4 are in the low 'normal' range (although, she still took more bloods for tsh, ft3, ft4 again, which I'm confused about) She was however concerned with my serum cortisol level, which is 1097 (morning ref range 170-540) She has now requested that I undertake a 24 hour urine cortisol test (which I've done) I also have had another cortisol blood test done and I'm due to have a further one done on 16/12/2013 after taking a tablet at 10pm the night before and she was insistent that I have the blood test no later than 9am the next morning. I am confused though as to what all this means, as she has ruled out thyroid, but is testing again for it and she didn't explain what the tests for the cortisol are for just getting stressed and worried now
