Subbarayan Anbezhil , Spoudeas Helen , Peters Catherine , Dattani Mehul , Hindmarsh Peter , Brain Caroline , Amin Rakesh

Background: Glucagon (GST) is used as an alternative to insulin (ITT) to diagnose GH deficiency (GHD) and adrenal insufficiency (ACTHd). However the peak cortisol response to diagnose adrenal insufficiency varies (550, and 500 nmol/l), has been extrapolated from adults undergoing intraoperative stress and not fully validated.Aim: To determine the peak cortisol ‘cut off’ level which most accurately predicts clinically significant adrenal insuffi...
