I received results from my physician and fully expected to receive the news that I have Addison's disease. (I am very ill and tan in between my fingers when I am too stressed, amongst many other symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea extreme weakness and inability to cope with stress, even good stress at times.)
However, he said that my results were normal for morning cortisol. The lab ranges Males and Females 8-10 AM 4.6-20.6 mcg/dL
4-6 PM 1.8-13.6 mcg/dL
My result was 10.3 for am cortisol. This was a blood test. He did say I have hashimotos thyroiditis which I already suspected. He wants to treat me for this without support for the adrenals. This I know can be life threatening if I do have Addison's. Does anyone have any idea how accurate this type of lab test would be for Addison's?
