Who should take the test?
We’re all well-acquainted with the sensation of enduring continual stress and experiencing persistent tension. Regrettably, our bodies are unable to distinguish whether we are genuinely facing a life-threatening situation or simply navigating our daily lives. In both scenarios, our bodies generate a substantial quantity of stress hormones, with cortisol and adrenaline being the most prominent.
Cortisol ranks as one of the primary stress hormones, alongside adrenaline, and it is primarily produced in the adrenal cortex. Typically, cortisol levels peak between six and eight in the morning, coinciding with the body’s awakening. Throughout the day, cortisol levels gradually decline, allowing the body to gradually unwind in the evening. During the period between midnight and four in the morning, cortisol levels usually reach their nadir. Elevated cortisol levels at this time can potentially lead to sleep disturbances.
The test analyzes the morning values of the following hormone:
- Diurnal/Daily Cortisol
Our Daily Cortisol Test helps you identify abnormalities in your stress hormones as accurately as possible by measuring the cortisol concentration throughout the day. With these valuable insights, you can take targeted steps to alleviate stress, enhance your sleep quality, and foster a healthier lifestyle.
How does it work?
Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.
Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to email@example.com.
