Re: Too Thin and Weepy Eyes

A reminder that reference ranges for ACTH aren't "normals" any more than the ones for insulin are.  It's a statistically generated range. If you talk about ceilings or cutoff values instead, it's more like 28 to 30 outside of the seasonal rise months . When you add in the possibility of lab error or poor sample handling, a value in high 20s with symptoms warrants an adjustment.
