My daughter’s blood tests show some scary diseases and syndromes online?

Hello I am contacting you about my daughter. She turns 14 tomorrow. Long story short, she had blood work 8 months ago, everything normal, except alsosterone (blood) came back at 2.5. Doctor was not concerned. I had labs sent to our family doctor, and he was not concerned. Last week at a routing physical, I asked about this again, they said at my request they would order cbc, panel, functions, cortisol, aldosterone. They instructed her to fast. She had the blood test the next morning at 7:50 am sitting in a chair. Doctor called that all was normal EXCEPT Cortisol 20, aldosterone 2.5. Sent me to pediatric endocrinologist. She was not concerned either. I want to feel at peace, but when I look up these levels online, I see scary diseases and syndromes. Please give me some insight to these levels, are they ok? I am so worried. Thank you.

If your concerned then redo the test while lying down
And do renin test as well
This can give you a satisfying answer

hi
neither the cortisol or aldosterone levels are alarming.
both levels are almost within normal range and i do not see any reason to panic.
adrenal system is functioning properly.do not worry.
most of the online interpretations can be confusing.
i suggest you to neglect them.
thanks

HI
ALDOSTERONE 2.5 IS PRETTY MUCH ON SAFER SIDE .
SO THIS INDICATES THAT ADRENAL GLAND FUNCTIONS ARE NORMAL.
IN ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCIES,THESE LEVELS ARE GROSSLY DERANGED.
CORTISOL LEVELS ARE BORDERLINE,ALTHOUGH NO MEDICATION WILL BE NEEDED.

hello there
test reports are absolutely nothing to worry about.
such borderline levels are seen i healthy individuals.
only if the levels are grossly deranged,then you should be worried.

In the current time it is not a concern,
But keep them in mind if she have unexplained heart palpitation or abnormal blood pressure

If I were you I would not worry at all and will not search online for misleading information …
Stay assured and get normal periodic checkups ..
