Cortisol Test Overview
Cortisol is often referred to as the "stress hormone" because it primarily aids in controlling how your body reacts to stress. The body produces cortisol in the adrenal glands that are located on top of the kidneys, by converting cholesterol into cortisol. Cortisol levels have an impact on various crucial bodily systems, including the cardiovascular, respiratory, reproductive, integumentary (skin, nerves, hair, glands, and nails), musculoskeletal, immune, and nervous systems. The primary functions of cortisol include triggering stress, reducing inflammatory responses, influencing immune functions, and regulating metabolism. Cortisol levels that are too high or too low may indicate an adrenal gland disease, a pituitary gland problem, or a cortisol-producing tumor. Therefore, monitoring both high and low cortisol levels can aid in maintaining overall health. Orange Health offers free sample collection from your home for the cortisol test in Noida. You can conveniently schedule a test through our website, either when you deem it necessary or upon a doctor's recommendation.

To measure and diagnose conditions affecting the pituitary glands
Symptoms of Cushing’s syndrome or high levels of cortisol are:

Excessive hair growth (hirsutism) in individuals identified as female at birth
Muscle weakness (especially in the upper arms and thighs)
Development of wide, purple stretch marks on the abdomen
Weight gain (notably in the face and abdomen)
Increased blood pressure (hypertension)
Symptoms of Addison’s disease or low levels of cortisol are:

List of parameters considered during the Cortisol Test
A cortisol test has only one parameter; measuring cortisol hormone levels in the body. The standard range for cortisol hormone in the body is between 0–10 mcg/dL. Levels outside of this range, whether higher or lower, are considered abnormal and warrant further analysis to identify potential health problems.
As mentioned earlier, elevated cortisol levels may indicate Cushing's syndrome, while decreased levels may indicate Addison's disease or adrenal insufficiency. However, it is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider to obtain guidance on interpreting the cortisol test results because cortisol levels can also be influenced by other factors, such as medication or stress.
