My new A1C is 5.3. My cholesterol is 181 and everything looked great except for my cortisol level which was borderline high. High enough that I am to pee in a jug for 24 hours and take two pills at 11:00 one night and have bloodwork drawn the next morning. I know cortisol is the stress hormone so I am not surprised at this but I am not going to google to see what else it could mean. Any words of wisdom or comfort? I also had an abdominal ultrasound that showed a couple of super tiny polyps in my gallbladder. Excited I still have a low A1C. Scared about this cortisol level thing..............
