You must ask the lab that did the test for their normal range based on salt intake. Has K ever been low? This may lower aldo ...Read more

My cortisol 24h urine result was 68nmol/d and the range was 0 — 193nmol/d how is it possible for zero cortisol to be within the normal range?
Diagnosis of Cushing: A 24 hr urine cortisol is used to help in the diagnosis of cushings syndrome (high cortisol). It is a useless test for the diagnosis of low cortisol (addison's disease). The normal range is really to indicate where the upper limit of normal is, not the lower limit. Your level was normal, and therefore not consistent with hypercortisolism. ...Read more

I have been having sticky strong sensed urine for a few weeks now... I thought I needed more water but after still having same results... Recently yes?
Hematuria: Blood in the urine is usually considered worrisome only if there are more than 3 red cells per high power field. Before worrying, I would check one more time.
