Well, I have the official result of my 1st cortisol test. It was a saliva test. My lab uses measurements it seems no one else does - and several different places say the conversion math is different - so I can't even look into it more.

What I do know is that the Reference Range for mine, at the time done, is < OR = 0.09 mcg/dL- my result was 1.94 mcg/dL. (So 21.5x upper "normal.) - I called to make sure that the decimal was in the right place. It was.

This has been the only test at this point. Again, we ruled out Cushings for me last year. I'm scheduled to see an Endocrinologist in a month and a half, but he's mostly a diabetes specialist (rural area, take what you can get, it's still an hour away.)

Do you know of anywhere I can ask for info on how my result compares to people with other disorders? The mcg/dL really throws things off.
