Doubt it: Hi. I am not familiar with the units you measure cortisol in in Ireland, but if it the units I suspect (which would be 23 in the units we use), it would be very unlikely to be Addison's. You could have poor adrenal reserve, or the circumstances (e.g., stress) the cortisol 651 was drawn under could perhaps make one think yours should have been higher. With uncertainties, I can't be absolute.
