ask: Cortisol Levels Higher than Range?

Also, I have had 2 positive Urine Free Cortisol tests. They were both 52.5 and slightly above the 50 maximum. The UFC lab had a 0-50 range. What can this indicate? Is a positive a positive when it comes for testing for Cushings or is there a certain number that is indicative of Cushings?

Thanks for your guidance :0)

Hi Beth76,

It's important to discuss the results of any test with your doctor.
