Cortisol Test Overview
Cortisol, a hormone found in the body, plays a crucial role in managing various functions such as stress response, blood sugar regulation, blood pressure control, and inflammation reduction. Maintaining balanced cortisol levels is essential for overall health. Deviations from normal levels of cortisol can contribute to serious conditions like Cushing's syndrome, Addison's disease, and certain cancers. Consequently, it is vital to regularly assess cortisol levels through a cortisol test, enabling proactive measures to safeguard our health.
Reasons for Undergoing the Cortisol Test
Assessment of cortisol levels is crucial as the cortisol hormone regulates many bodily functions. A cortisol test will be recommended by the doctor in case the doctor suspects any signs or symptoms of abnormal cortisol levels such as the following.
The signs of high cortisol levels are:
Fat deposition around the base of the neck or between the shoulder blades
Purple lines or marks on the stomach, breasts, hips, and under the arms
Thin arms and legs
The signs of low cortisol levels are:
Loss of appetite
If you also notice any of these symptoms, you should consult your doctor to get a test done.

List of parameters considered during the Cortisol Test
The cortisol test measures only one parameter: the cortisol level in the blood. The standard range for cortisol hormone in the body is 0–10 mcg/dL.
Elevated cortisol levels suggest Cushing's syndrome and low levels indicate Addison's disease. It's crucial to recognise that cortisol levels follow a diurnal pattern, in that, they are higher in the morning and lower at night. Therefore, the timing of sample collection is a significant factor that affects test results. For precise results, it is advisable to consult your doctor, who can provide guidance for accurate interpretation of your test results.
