Cortisol Test Overview
Do you find it difficult to lose belly fat despite following a healthy diet, regular exercise, and a proper sleep schedule? This may be due to elevated cortisol levels in your blood. Cortisol is a steroid hormone, produced by the adrenal glands (situated over the kidney) that helps regulate the body’s response to stress. As a result, it is frequently called the "stress hormone".
The cortisol test, as the name suggests, is used to check the cortisol hormone levels in the blood. Balanced cortisol levels maintain the levels of stress, blood pressure, and glucose, as well as immune responses.
Reasons to Take the Cortisol Blood Test
Cortisol is an important hormone in the human body that affects every organ. It is responsible chiefly for responding to stress. It also helps reduce inflammation, controls blood pressure, and regulates blood sugar and metabolism in the body. Too little or excessive cortisol levels can be harmful, and it is important to be diagnosed. A cortisol test in Mumbai may be recommended to detect disorders of the adrenal glands or pituitary glands, such as:
Cushing’s syndrome (a pituitary disorder associated with excessive cortisol levels)
Addison's disease (a disorder of the adrenal gland that results in low cortisol levels)
