Hello, I have Sjogrens and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I have been on prednisone 10+ years. My rheumatologist ordered a cortisol test because of my symptoms. It was 0.8. She upped prednisone to 10 mg and sent me to an endocrinologist. He berated me for coming in and said I “just need to take prednisone anyway”. Shouldn’t he have done some testing since I already have an autoimmune endocrine disease? Is it possible that the low cortisol is from that, not prednisone use? And, does it indeed not matter what the cause is? He did nothing and recommended nothing. Just yelled at me. I am not sure what to do now.
