Hi, I have had two UFC done and both showed elevated Corticol levels one 645 and the other 684. I had a dexamethasone suppression text done and that was 81 (over night test) I then had a 48 hour test done and that came back as 20. I am awaiting results from a ATCH test but my endocrinologist was adamant that everything is fine and there is nothing more she can do. Sounds great I know but I am so tired, I have put on a lot of weight and can't shift it despite eating very carefully and being very active. I can sleep for up to 15 hours and lack energy. My hair is thinning I take ages to heel from cuts and bruises. My thyroid has been tested and that's fine! I am vitamin D deficient and was given a weekly 40,000 unit dose to take for four weeks. I am an insulin dependent diabetic but my last H1bac test was 47 so my control is good. But I am needing to inject more than I ever have before sometimes up to 80 units just to keep my levels at an acceptable level.
Help! My endo says there is nothing more she can do! I'm needing some guidance. She said I need to speak to my gp to get a referral to someone else but when I asked who I should be referred to she didn't know. It was a very frustrating phone call and I honestly feel I am getting no where. My memory is aweful, I am not depressed! what should I do!?
