    Here is a good site: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/e...cle/003693.htm

    and here is a related thread: http://allnurses.com/forums/f8/eleva...ean-87944.html

    Hope that helps!

    Funny you should mention this because just this week, after 10 years of being treated for lupus they decided I don't have it and now they are looking at Cushing's Syndrome, which is why I was researching cortisol as you wrote this, lol
