I'd say if you have a history of long term pred usage or a lot cumulative pred usage in your past, then it cannot hurt to have your cortisol levels checked. Especially, if you suffer from fatigue and/or aches (low cortisol levels cause that). Medically necessary, no, but if you have issues you cannot figure out them maybe therein might lay an answer. I know you can get a simple blood test to check your cortisol levels.
