Cortisol Blood Test

The Cortisol Blood Test is designed to measure the levels of cortisol, a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, commonly known as the “stress hormone.” Cortisol is vital for various bodily functions, including glucose metabolism, blood pressure regulation, inflammation reduction, and stress response. This test helps identify if your cortisol levels are within a normal range and can indicate potential health issues related to stress and adrenal function.
