ACTH Stimulation Test Results

ACTH Stimulation Test Results
Recently received back my ACTH stimulation test results and wanted to share (below).  Ideally, I would have done a repeat of the Adrenal saliva panel I had done 8 months ago, but that is not an option right now due to my financial situation.  Doctor says everything looks good (within the ranges), and suggested that maybe the symptoms of fatigue, low stress tolerance, etc. are not hormonal, but possibly some type of ongoing infection; he has referred me to an infectious disease doctor. Not sure if others have seen similar results, or been able to correlate their ACTH stimulation results to their saliva results, or have ever seen the test show results for adrenal insufficiency vs. failure. Thoughts?

Posting the Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) Test results received from Diagnos-Techs, Inc.

My Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) Test Results

My Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) Test Results
Last week I conducted an Adrenal Stress Index Test (ASI) which involved filling four little test tubes with saliva at specific times throughout the day (8am, noon, 4pm, and midnight). This is a surprisingly difficult thing to do as you need a good amount of bubble-free saliva in each sample. Your mouth also has to be clean so as not to contaminate the sample with food particles! The ASI measures levels of the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA whose levels naturally vary slightly throughout the day. These hormones help us deal with stress and provide energy and a sense of well-being. When levels aren't optimal we feel drained and fatigued and other functions such as blood sugar control and immune system function suffer. Some of the symptoms associated with abnormal levels of adrenal hormones include: - Fatigue - Feeling Drained - Hypoglycaemia/Blood Sugar Imbalance - Dizziness Upon Standing - Insomnia -...
