Normal cortisol levels?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi again, I previously posted a discussion talking about whether I should be tested for Cushing's based on the symptoms I had stated (in that discussion) that I am experiencing. 

I received my blood test results and my serum cortisol levels came back normal.

I was also tested for a few other things, and from my blood count, my MCV showed to be low, however during the blood test I was towards the end of my menstruation which I've heard could've affected the results in regards to the low MCV. And also my folic acid levels were borderline below average  (which I already know about from past blood tests).

I have yet to discuss my blood test results with my gp. But I would like some advice, and opinions on whether I should still pursue getting tested for Cushing's or not. Thanks smile

    If you feel you have it,

    Keep looking into it
