ACTH blood tests measure the amount of adrenocorticotropic hormone, known as ACTH, in the blood.
ACTH is a hormone made by the pituitary gland.
ACTH regulates the production and secretion of the hormone cortisol by the adrenal gland.
An ACTH test is normally performed on persons with whose cortisol hormone levels are abnormal. An ACTH test can help to diagnose adrenal or pituitary diseases such as Cushing's syndrome, Cushing's disease, Addison's disease, adrenal tumours, and pituitary tumours.
