I did a cortisol saliva test in 2013, all were in range but far from optimal (I read that on STTM). I feel worse and endo sent me for an ACTH stimulation test, waiting for result. If that will be normal, I would redo the saliva test as something is surely not right (in 2013 noon cortisol was only 3.2 – range: 1.2-17.8 nM. And that’s when I feel the worst) Wondering if an endo would prescribe hydrocortisone if blood test are ok but saliva cortisol is low or just a bit over the lower range?
If you have any experience with this, will you please share.
