Corticoesteroids and ACTH testing

Maria Duran


My friend´s PSI mare 16 years old has been infiltrated and recieved mesotherapy with corticos for her kissing spines and the mare has sensitivity in her hooves since then. It is not very obvious but mild, as she is 16 and has also poor topline development, my friend is willing to do a bloodwork for PPID. 

How long should she wait for the bloodwork to be done so that the corticos are not influencing anymore the reading? Would ACTH be lower or higher in the reading?

Thank you very much.
