Keep testing but you may have missed your ovulation, time will tell. Considering your endo and pelvic pain hx, you should be on birth control unless u r trying to get pregnant. Either way.

I've had a low ACTH level for over a year 5, Cortosil level of 8, I've been to two different endos and no one seems to have an answer any suggestion ?

I've had a low ACTH level for over a year 5, Cortosil level of 8, I've been to two different endos and no one seems to have an answer any suggestion ?

Could be normal: Hi. The adrenals are notoriously difficult to test due to diurnal variation, and testing is directed by clinical suspicion. If neither endo sees a problem, you have to accept there probably is not a problem. Of the two tests (ACTH & cortisol), ACTH is the tricky one to measure. The only standard is 8 AM, and if the 8 AM cortisol is normal (like 8), then by default, ACTH is normal. Good luck. ...Read more

I am taking metformin but my endo said that i an prediabetic not diabetic

Metformin: Your endocrinologist has specialized training in diabetes management and must have come to the conclusion that you would benefit from metformin. For prediabetic patients the first line of treatment is lifestyle change with weight loss, exercise, and diet modification. If this does not work, a physician may choose to start a patient on metformin before they progress to full blown diabetes. ...Read more
