ACTH stim test was created by ramz

HI I am going for my first ACTH stim test in the morning of Jan 9th in the new year. I am on 20 to 25mg of HC. How long should I be off HC before testing? My endo says two full days I should be off. Also I will be traveling down south from Canada for a wedding next week for 4days. What should I do in terms of my dosage? should I stress dose for a few days? One more thing. I don't know if I have AI OR AFatigue and I don't' have the shot to take in case I need it. I guess the test in the new year will show all that, By the way I'm on HC because they did a 400 pm blood work and showed I had low cortisol.
