That means I have enough Cortisol in my blood for say 40 people? 10x.3=3 x 4 = 12. Ya so a little over 40 people.
And that was not one test but 2 days apart. Cortisol is a stress hormone but it can also be an indication of an ACTH secreting (tells the addrenal gland to make Cortisol) tumor in the Pituitary Gland.
Taken those test together and my biopsy which ... 4 weeks later, no word on it still. (Its not generally good if it takes a month) but...I decided I probably should see an Endocrinologist in addition to my Dermatologist now.
Called one, they said they required a doctors referral. I shared that I had gone off and ordered these tests and was awaiting a biopsy... they said fax me the tests and Ill look at it. I sent my test results from the Low TSH, TS3, TS4 and Super High Cortisol and they called me back and scheduled me in. I think thats a sign ... when they see you without a referral.
