Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that helps many bodily functions, including the regulation of stress. Abnormal levels of cortisol are associated with malfunctions of the adrenal and pituitary glands.
This test measures the level of Cortisol in the body through a saliva sample collected within 30 minutes of waking. Salivary cortisol is one of the mostly recommended testing tools to help diagnose Cushing syndrome and stress-related problems in the body.
Test results may take 6-10 business days.
