Cortisol is a steroid hormone, produced by the adrenal gland. It is vital for survival as it's involved in various important functions such as immunity, regulating blood pressure, releasing insulin for blood sugar maintenance and responding to inflammation.
Cortisol has been termed 'the stress hormone' because it's also secreted in higher levels during the body's 'fight or flight' response to stress, and is responsible for several stress-related changes in the body.
This urine test establishes the levels of cortisol before leading to a diagnosis. This requires collecting all urine produced during a day. This sample will reflect the total amount of cortisol produced in a 24 hour period but will not show variations in cortisol.
Cushing syndrome is caused by too much cortisol, while Addison's disease is caused by damage to the adrenal, and is associated with too little cortisol.
This urine test is for anyone who requires help with the diagnosis of Cushing syndrome and Addison disease or who believe that their stressful lifestyle is damaging their health.
