393 Possible Causes for Cortisol Insufficiency

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Primary adrenal insufficiency results in deficiencies of cortisol, aldosterone, and adrenal androgens, whereas central insufficiency causes only isolated cortisol deficiency[ime.acponline.org] Site-specific cut-off levels for AI were RESULTS: Overall, 70/400 (17.5%) in the LDT group and 118/404 (29.2%) in the HDT group showed an insufficient increase of cortisol[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ) Morning serum cortisol level 13 mcg/dL reliably rules out adrenal insufficiency ( J Fam Pract 2009;58:281a ) Relative adrenal insufficiency: if patient's cortisol response[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    Low ACTH ( 5 pg/mL) and cortisol suggest secondary adrenal insufficiency.[merckmanuals.com] […] instructing them to make cortisol (called secondary adrenal insufficiency).[endocrineweb.com] The aim of these tests is first to determine whether levels of cortisol are insufficient and then to establish the cause.[web.archive.org]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Secondary adrenal insufficiency is due to hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction causing inadequate ACTH production. This results in cortisol deficiency only.[mhmedical.com] Addison's Disease Acute adrenal crisis (Addisonian Crisis / Acute Adrenal Insufficiency) Cortisol deficiency Aldosterone deficiency Living with adrenal insufficiency (Addison[mymed.com] Addisonian crisis is a rare occurrence, characterized by a sudden onset insufficiency in the production of cortisol and aldosterone by the adrenal glands.[symptoma.com]

  • Hypersensitivity

    A 46-year-old woman presented for evaluation of adrenal insufficiency prompted by low plasma cortisol levels and multiple unexplained symptoms but without clinical evidence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical studies excluded primary or secondary adrenal insufficiency, established consistently low basal cortisol levels, and demonstrated hypersensitivity to ultra-low-dose[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of glucocorticoid insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sinusitis

    […] of serum cortisol.[mdpi.com] Hydrocortisone (cortisol) is typically used for replacement therapy, e.g. for adrenal insufficiency and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.[en.wikipedia.org] Thus, adrenal insufficiency in all the patients was negligible.[mdpi.com]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Key hormones regulating blood sugar in the body include insulin, cortisol, and growth hormone.[drlam.com] Adrenal insufficiency results from diseases that impair the adrenal glands, which are located above the kidneys.[emedicinehealth.com] Conditions associated with Adrenal Fatigue that might also play a part in sugar regulation include Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, metabolic syndrome, drug effects, adrenal insufficiency[drlam.com]

  • Malnutrition

    […] of the cortisol-to-insulin ratio. as we have seen, malnutrition is a powerful stress stimulator and causes an increase in the cortisol levels and its catabolic action.[scielo.br] Combining all that information ( Figure 3 ), we can then say that insufficient consumption during the growth period causes a stress in the organism, leading to an increase[scielo.br]

  • Autoimmune Adrenal Insufficiency

    Primary adrenal insufficiency results in deficiencies of cortisol, aldosterone, and adrenal androgens, whereas central insufficiency causes only isolated cortisol deficiency[ime.acponline.org] In secondary and tertiary insufficiency the atrophic adrenal glands still produce some cortisol when exposed to ACTH.[endocrinesurgeon.co.uk] cortisol levels fail to rise after synthetic ACTH stimulation due to the destruction of the adrenal cortex secondary adrenal insufficiency cortisol levels rise after synthetic[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pregnancy

    More severe insulin resistance accompanied by insufficient compensatory insulin release in GDM limits glucose transport into cells, increasing maternal glucose concentration[doi.org] Pathophysiology Placental hormones secreted in pregnancy including oestrogen, progesterone, cortisol, placental lactogen, prolactin and growth hormone, create an insulin resistant[doi.org]

  • Adrenal Infarction

    Primary adrenal insufficiency results in deficiencies of cortisol, aldosterone, and adrenal androgens, whereas central insufficiency causes only isolated cortisol deficiency[ime.acponline.org] There was no evidence of adrenal insufficiency with normal cortisol and adenocorticotropic hormone levels for pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Baseline cortisol was Conclusion: Acute adrenal insufficiency due to bilateral adrenal haemorrhagic infarction is a rare manifestation of APS and must be considered in the[endocrine-abstracts.org]
