I am a 35 year old male. What is the normal range of cortisol in a 24-hour collected urine probe? Is having too low cortisol levels in 24-hours collected urine probe a clinical matter? In the last six months, I had three urine testings with the account of cortisol between 10-12 µg/24 hours. I am dealing with PTSD and a distinct fatigue.Related Questions:

Thank your for your answer and your further questioning about my health issues. As I mentioned in my first message, I am dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. In conjunction with that, one of my biggest challenge is severe fatigue. Sometimes, it just constrains me to the bed. I nearly cannot get out of it, it pushes me down. When I exercise to get into activity again and to stimulate my circulation, afterwards it gets even worse, I am exhausted, not activated. So, in research, because of my struggle with PTSD, I found an article which mentioned decreased cortisol levels in people with PTSD. So, I was curious about my own cortisol level. Therefore I did several testings. I really wonder if low cortisol could be one of the underlying reasons for my fatigue. You wrote about a range from 10 to 100 microgram. I saw several ranges, which began on 20 micogram upward. What is a range I can orientate on and what are the influencing factors? Respective to my medication I can add the following: Fluvoxamine 100 mg (1/d), Pantoprazole 20 mg (1/d). I personally think that 10 to 100 is such a great range and if you are at the bottom of it, could it be that you are at the bottom is primary?
