Hi everyone, I'm new to this part of the site although a visitor to another section.
I'm under a specialist at a hospital in Birmingham for severe asthma, so I'm on long term steroids, have tried many times to get off them but to no avail, anyway, my specialist asked for a cortisol blood test my own doctors rang me yesterday and told me that my cortisol level was low! That was it! They didn't suggest a follow up appointment to see my own doc to discuss meds and treatment, all they asked was when have I got my next appointment in Birmingham, I told them it wasn't until at least September, I asked them about coming too see the doc, they replied that if an appointment was required they would ring me back.
Should I be concerned that my cortisol level is low? That my doc doesn't seem overly concerned about seeing me?
Any advice would be gladly received.
