Fatigue: Your test rules out adrenal gland insufficiency but the significance of the elevated level is best evaluated by an endocrinologist. A thorough review of systems by taking a thorough history, a complete physical examination combined with tests to check for underactive thyroid, anemia, iron deficiency, chronic infection, chronic inflammatory diseases, sleep disorders,etc are also causes of Fatigue
