Just got this today in the post from Genova Diags.
Sample 1 23.7 (12-22)
Sample 2 3.9 (5-9)
Sample 3 9.4 (3-7)
Sample 4 1.3 (1-3)
Ranges in brackets.
Sample 2 am 0.89
Sample 3 pm. 0.82
Both are inside range.
Summary: morning cortisol level above normal. Possible reflection of low night time blood sugar levels, insomnia, chronic pain, inflammation, glycogen storage impairment or imbalance in hypothalamic adrenal axis.
Noon cortisol is below. A degree do adrenal hypo function with decreased adaptive response.
Afternoon cortisol. Above normal, indicative of the blood glucose counter regulation process or stress action.
In nutshell, what does this all mean and what course of action is required to correct this?
I assume there is an issue here amongst this terminology.
