So last week I did a 24 urine cortisol and VMA test. Today I went in for a nuclear medicine bone scan to check for any bone abnormalities. I just got the results of the urine test, and the cortisol seems to be at a fine level, but my creatinine came back low. Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this? I have had my creatinine checked before and it's always a me back fine.... I'll upload a list of the test results from the 24hr test as well as previous tests, the two tests I'm uploading were done almost 5 months apart.
