So, the good news is the Bile Acid was normal, which means the Enterohepatic Circulation-gall bladder to small intestine to liver bloodstream to liver to gall bladder-is functioning well. The bad news is some odd readings on the ACTH Stimulation Test. So, even though Cushing's is still possible, it's moved down on the list. Yeah?
So, instead of going with the Low Dose or High Dose Dexamethasone Suppression Test (another blood test), we're going to have ultrasound done to look at the liver and the adrenal glands. Actually, it will be a full internal organs screening. Doc will have to get it scheduled with the specialists, possibly for Wednesday of next week or the week after.
Staying calm. Never thought I'd say this, but I hope it ends up being something that they ate that did some damage, but has now flushed out of their system. The liver, over time and with supplements, can heal without any invasive surgery. Marvelous organ, the liver.
Hang in there.... BREATHE.... things ARE settling....... and looking alot better than they were. Sometimes.. age is just the result.... wait and see.
