Short synacthen stimulation test:
30 minutes: "A result ≥ 400 nmol/L suggests adequate adrenal reserve"
60 minutes: "A result ≥ 460 nmol/L suggests adequate adrenal reserve"
In patients taking Estrogen or if pregnant, peak cortisol levels need to be higher to suggest adequate adrenal reserve but a higher cut-off is not well defined. Suggest endocrinology consultation if in doubt.
