Re: Protocol for Re-testing ACTH
Eleanor Kellon, VMD
Because Gilligan was tested during the seasonal rise, his results may be falsely elevated. There are no side effects of taking him off unless he really needed it in which case you may see increased drinking, lethargy, pot belly after two weeks or so. It's very important to do the test at home. Shipping will falsely elevate ACTH. Do the TRH test again. Repeat insulin.
