Understanding Cortisol Levels
Cortisol is termed as the stress hormone because it is produced at higher levels during the body's fight or flight response to stress. But aside from this, Cortisol is also involved in other bodily functions, such as regulation of blood pressure, inflammatory response, and proper glucose metabolism. Abnormal levels of Cortisol in the bloodstream are associated with some negative effects, including suppressed thyroid function, decreased bone density and muscle tissue, increased abdominal fat, impaired cognitive functions and higher blood pressure, to name a few.
This single Morning Cortisol test will help indicate if you are starting your day with Cortisol levels in an abnormal range. However, your levels of cortisol fluctuate normally throughout the day, making a full day, Diurnal Cortisol test a more complete representation of cortisol health.
**PLEASE NOTE: When Selecting the Single Cortisol Panel, This Only Tests Your MORNING Cortisol Levels. If You Want to Test Your Full Day, Diurnal (4x) Cortisol Levels, You Need to Purchase This Test.**
