Abstract

The Short Synacthen Test is the way that we most often determine whether people's adrenal glands are working. We here have shown that an extra blood sample taken at 60 minutes post Synacthen vs a 30 minute sample alone, may make the test more effective at excluding those people who do not need to go on hydrocortisone supplementation or need further evaluation.
