I have been having these symptoms for months to almost a year now. I am a 20 year old male.
I have symptoms of: low appetite, gastrointestinal disturbances, muscle loss in arms and legs, flabby stomach, chronic/moderate fatigue, muscle weakness, constant thirst/for salty and general fluids, some days urinating up to 7 Litres, constantly waking up from sleep. Poor wound healing, joint pains/cracking of joints, sudden shortness of breath, weight loss.
I had some blood tests done and they revealed the following:
Aldosterone - 80 pmol/L - LOW (Upright) (100 - 950)
Renin - 41 mU/L - HIGH (Upright) (3 - 40)
Aldosterone/Renin Ratio - 2 (2 - 75)
Blood Cortisol - 773 HIGH (140 - 630)
ACTH - 12 HIGH (<11)
Then my GP ordered 24 hour urinary free cortisol, sodium and 24hr aldosterone.
Urinary free cortisol - 378 * (100 - 320)
Urinary Sodium 400 * (<100)
Aldosterone isn't back yet.
Does anyone have any idea what is happening to me.
