Background: Biochemical evidence of adrenal insufficiency (AI) is reported commonly during inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) treatment for asthma. The significance of mildly abnormal results is uncertain. For this reason we adopt a stratified approach to the management of patients with impaired cortisol responses to the low dose short Synacthen test (LDSST): Patients with peak cortisol 350–499 nmol/l (‘suboptimal’) receive hydrocortisone 20 mg/m2 per day d...
