CRH test is somewhat discounted anymore today. It was a test done once they knew you had elevated cortisol levels (for sure and quite elevated) and was done to see if it was "regular" Cushings or Pseudo Cushings and also to try and determine if it was adrenal or pituitary (if it was "regular" Cushings).

Problem was that it did not have the degree of reliability and accuracy needed. Too many "false negatives" and "false positives". Is still used by some, but generally replaced by other tests...
