Re: Elevated ACTH for reason other than cushings??

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

The TRH response test will cause a rise in ACTH if the horse has PPID but not if it is normal.  However, unless there was a clear acutely stressful event with 5 to 25 minutes of the sample this rise is probably not stress related.
