    I was at the endo clinic today and my consultant said she needs a 24hr urine test for cortisone as I may have a different type diabetes than was originally thought I'm type 2 on insulin if anyone could explain I would be grateful

    All symptoms of either addisons or cushings
    The test is to see how your adrenal gland is functioning, it may come back normal, doctor may be testing to rule out the above illnesses which are fairly rare
