Abstract

Despite the widespread use of the short synacthen test (SST), there remains no clear consensus on sampling times for the measurement of serum cortisol that best determines adrenal reserve. We set out to establish whether there is any value in measuring serum cortisol at 60 min following administration of synacthen.
