    I'm not sure I understand this.

    It says salivary cortisol levels are NOT a significant predictor of momentary farigue in AI patients.

    So what tests should be used?

    I was dx with AI via salivary testing. I definitely have a tough time moving in the mornings. I was under the impression that my adrenal test explained this.

    I don’t know what they mean by “momentary fatigue”. I thought that adrenal insufficiency caused chronic low energy. Some of the patients had Cushing’s sydrome or AI secondary to another condition. These could have contributed to the momentary fatigue.
