Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It is vital for survival given its role in various functions such as immunity, regulating blood pressure and releasing insulin for blood sugar maintenance. Cortisol has been termed ‘the stress hormone’ because it is secreted in higher quantities during the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response and is responsible for several stress-related changes in the body.

This test establishes the levels of cortisol in the blood. Cushing’s syndrome is caused by too much cortisol, while Addison’s disease is caused by damage to the adrenal glands, and is associated with too little cortisol.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space woodmart_hide_large=”0″ woodmart_hide_medium=”0″ woodmart_hide_small=”0″ woodmart_hide_extra_small=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1535364285915{margin-bottom: 4vh !important;padding-bottom: 4vh !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″ woodmart_text_align=”center” offset=”vc_col-lg-3 vc_col-md-6 vc_col-xs-12″ css=”.vc_custom_1535364295611{margin-bottom: 4vh !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;border-right-color: #efefef !important;border-right-style: solid !important;}”][woodmart_info_box icon_style=”with-border” image=”5768″ alignment=”center” btn_position=”static” btn_color=”primary” btn_size=”small” btn_style=”link” info_box_inline=”yes” img_size=”60×60″ link=”#” title=”Collect Sample” css=”.vc_custom_1570598161577{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-right: 8% !important;padding-left: 8% !important;}” woodmart_css_id=”5d9d6d0a2857a” icon_border_color=”eyJwYXJhbV90eXBlIjoid29vZG1hcnRfY29sb3JwaWNrZXIiLCJjc3NfYXJncyI6eyJib3JkZXItY29sb3IiOlsiIC5pbmZvLWJveC1pY29uIl19LCJzZWxlY3Rvcl9pZCI6IjVkOWQ2ZDBhMjg1N2EiLCJkYXRhIjp7ImRlc2t0b3AiOiIjMWZiY2MxIn19″ svg_animation=”no” woodmart_empty_space=””]We send you an easy-to-use kit to collect your blood sample[/woodmart_info_box][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ woodmart_text_align=”center” offset=”vc_col-lg-3 vc_col-md-6 vc_col-xs-12″ css=”.vc_custom_1525352884824{margin-bottom: 4vh !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;border-right-color: #efefef !important;border-right-style: solid !important;}”][woodmart_info_box icon_style=”with-border” image=”5769″ alignment=”center” btn_position=”static” btn_color=”primary” btn_size=”small” btn_style=”link” info_box_inline=”yes” img_size=”60×60″ link=”#” title=”Mail Sample” css=”.vc_custom_1570598168628{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-right: 8% !important;padding-left: 8% !important;}” woodmart_css_id=”5d9d6d133034c” svg_animation=”no” icon_border_color=”eyJwYXJhbV90eXBlIjoid29vZG1hcnRfY29sb3JwaWNrZXIiLCJjc3NfYXJncyI6eyJib3JkZXItY29sb3IiOlsiIC5pbmZvLWJveC1pY29uIl19LCJzZWxlY3Rvcl9pZCI6IjVkOWQ2ZDEzMzAzNGMiLCJkYXRhIjp7ImRlc2t0b3AiOiIjMWZiY2MxIn19″ woodmart_empty_space=””]Mail it back within 24 hours of completing your test.
