Are these cortisol levels considered borderline high?

My 24 hour urine results came back 151 from a normal range of 20-50. My endocrinologist says that is just borderline high. From a layperson standpoint, it appears to be 3 times the top of the range. This would indicate at least a moderately high test result.

I had an am low dose suppression test that came back normal. My ACTH and cortisol levels both suppressed. I was wondering if these test results rule out all forms of cushing's syndrome and disease (specifically food induced or dependent cushings).

My current symptoms are:
Stretch marks thighs and arms, central obesity, fatigue, cognitive issues, vision problems

My 24 hour cortisol is 127.4 ug and my gp says not to worry about it.
I have same problems listed above by fronty.
