Re: ACTH Results seem too high - could the blood have been compromised?

Hi Bonnie,

While 157pg/ml is a definitive positive for PPID at any time of the year, it's not something to panic about. For instance, one of my boys had a result of 1166pg/ml and another had 1250pg/ml the first time I tested them after they came to me.

It means she really needs to be started on pergolide to get things under control, then retest after 3 weeks at the target dose to see where things stand.
