Hi my son has been poorly in one form or another since birth. He has server acid reflux, has had a hypoglycemic attack with a blood sugar level of 2.5, had pneumonia at 6 months which then led to all kinds of viruses. He has an inhaler and is extremely as sensitive to dairy. He hates any kind of sunlight and has days where he is so fatigued he doesn't even wan to get out of his cot! He is very unsteadY on his feet at times and has a thirst like nothibg I've ever seen! He also had the most outrageous mood swings! Once he contracts a virus his body can't seem to fight as well as it should and he is ether extremely poorly or extremely well there's no in between! Anyway after much debate and tests they found he had a random cortisol reading of 181 and he was put under a professor of inherited metabolic diseases who asked for a synathen test to be performed. Unfortunately they were unable to canulate him so we are now waiting for an appointment to try again buy this time sedating him. What they did manage to get was a blood cortisol which showed 211 this was at 8.30am so my question is those two readings, are they low? Does anyone know what it sounds like in say if what's wrong? Had anyone heard of a child so young having these issues before?
Any advice gratefully recieved!
