I just got a phone call telling me that my 24hr cortisol urine test needs to be redone (they were also testing for Catecholamines). When i asked why, I got told they think no acid was in the bottle to which I added the urine too.
I know for fact that there was acid in that bottle and it looked to be about the right amount as Ive had several of these tests done before. (my cortisol level is just out of normal range and low). Its only me in my house and hence i know that bottle was never open and spilt, I put the lid back on super tight when i took it into the doctors to get sent to the lab. So now im wondering what on earth have they probably found to be thinking that there was no acid in the urine container?????
Have they stuffed up the test on their end and used this as an excuse?? or is it likely I have extremely abnormal test results that they arent believing from first test so want it redone?????
Would Addisons disease make a test result look like possibly no acid was added?? or something to do with Catecholamines??
thanks if anyone can respond
