ACTH is always higher this time of year, even for non-Cushinoid horses. Had you waited until Spring to test her, you might have seen numbers in the 5-600s, which is still high, but not so scary. At any rate, once she is stabilized on the pergolide, the numbers will begin to fall. I highly recommend and strongly suggest you join the yahoo IR/Cushing's group as you will get the most information there.
