5] Our study aims to diagnose adrenal insufficiency in critically ill patients on the basis of ACTH stimulation test
No control dog had any clinical complaint or abnormality on urinalysis, complete blood count, serum biochemical panel, ACTH stimulation test
, or adrenal ultra-sonographic examination.
9) Adrenal insufficiency was considered because of the poor response to the ACTH stimulation test
The ACTH stimulation test
is more reliable than an unstimulated test for assessing the capacity of the adrenal glands to respond to a stressor.
6) found that cortisol values in the 60th minute in a 1 mcg low-dose ACTH stimulation test
(LDT) were significantly lower in the BD group than in the control group.
These symptoms indicate that the end of the induction has been reached and it's time for an ACTH stimulation test
During the short postoperative ACTH stimulation test
, cortisol values at 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes were 8.
We have not performed the high-dose ACTH stimulation test
(250 [micro]g of synthetic ACTH 1-24 per 1.
A 250 [micro]g ACTH stimulation test
Individuals were screened for diabetes and adrenal insufficiency, with basal cortisol levels and an ACTH stimulation test
at the time of study entry and were excluded if either was identified.
The most dependable screening method for both hyper- and hypoadrenocorticism, however, is an ACTH stimulation test
, which assesses the response of the adrenal glands to a test dose of the pituitary hormone.
4), the authors concluded that routine testing with the ACTH stimulation test
is not cost-effective for the evaluation of hirsutism.
