I have suffered with adrenal insufficiency now for over 3 years and at my worst, just after my adrenal crash, my cortisol was registering at 35 first thing in the morning. (150-600)
I am now getting to around 250 in the morning and my ACTH test shows that I can double my cortisol within 30 minutes. (My ACTH test after the crash saw me rise from 35-67)
Does this mean that I am back to normal or am I still at the lower end of normal? I am about to go in for an op and do not know whether my cortisol is still an issue. I still carry cortisol around with me just in case I start to feel symptoms, or what I think are symptoms.
Any help would be gratefully received
