Deficiency: The high acth levels could indicate sluggish function of your adrenal glands as seen in Addison's disease which can cause chronic fatigue as well as electrolyte abnormalities. However an endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate andtreat you and investigate the cause of your elevated acth level.
