About the Test
This cortisol hormone test can help determine the amount of cortisol present in your blood in the morning. Cortisol is the human body’s main stress hormone. It is necessary for the body to control things like fear, mood, and motivation. It also aids in regulating inflammation, blood pressure, blood sugar, sleep cycles and managing how foods are used, especially during stressful situations. Cortisol tests can help determine if there are issues with your body’s “alarm system.”
