I don't have full blown Addisons but my Adrenal glands have ceased to function and I have been given Hydrocortisone tablets to take daily. I have felt brilliant on these and a month back bloods check up at hospital showed that my cortisol level in my blood had risen satisfactorily, which confirms that I should feel as well as I do. However, another blood test was carried out today as part of regular checkups and shows a monumental plummet in cortisol despite the fact that I still feel great and am still taking the tabs. GP says that she wants to repeat the test tomorrow and is hoping this is a machine blip. Anyone else got any other ideas?
I am baffled and actually a bit concerned. Should I be?
