I just wanted to point out that the results of your low dose dex. test indicate the possibility that Jesse could have an adrenal tumor. There was no suppression after the injection of dexamesthasone, the second and third numbers are higher than the first. This test cannot diagnose an adrenal tumor but it can indicate the definitel possibility. By far, the best way to determine if Jesse has an adrenal tumor is a high quality ultrasound. I think this is something you should address with your professionals.

All the best to you and Jesse.

Thanks for looking at that Ken. I am at work and don't have the chart to look at. I was hoping someone would help her. Glad you found the site too!
