trh stim and exercise

LJ Friedman

Cornell says that exercise can increase ACTH levels. When I draw for my stimulation test, how many hours after exercise would you consider this not being a factor? Would you consider the walker at the walk exercise, and if taking a riding lesson on majestic, how many hours after the lesson would you consider enough rest to not raise ACTH? I can always do no work for him that day ,but often like to do something for him

Hi LJ,

The best thing you can do is schedule the blood draw for the morning so you can do exercise afterwards.

The best approach is no work until after the test - unless he worked the day of his last test in which case you want to try to duplicate the conditions as much as possible.
