Could some of you kind people comment on the following results for cortisol?
550 nmol/L (normal range 171 to 536 nmol/L)
19.9 ug/dL (6.2 to 19.4 ug/dL)
These results are following a blood test in response to feeling tired and sleepy, tendency to put on weight around the middle, desire to eat carbs and not inclined to eat fruit and veg, plus slightly spaced out feelings. Mum is Graves (treated by RAI) and Dad a type 2 diabetic. The person in question is 18.
The blood test was taken in the morning and the normal ranges given vary according to the time of day the blood is taken.
We have a doctor's appointment this week.
Any comments, and suggested next step?
Thanks so much
