Basal Cortisol

Horses

Basal cortisol is not useful for the diagnosis of Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction/Equine Cushings disease. Horses affected with this condition can have variable basal cortisol concentrations. Plasma endogenous ACTH or an Overnight Dexamethasone Suppression Test are the appropriate screening tests for PPID.
