Cortisol helps the body maintain blood pressure, glucose levels, immune response, and stress management.

  • Sample Type: Saliva
  • Results: 2-9 days

This test uses a saliva sample to measure cortisol levels. Saliva testing can provide just as accurate a measurement of adrenal hormones like cortisol as a blood test can. Cortisol testing is usually ordered to aid in the diagnosis of conditions related to the adrenal and pituitary glands such as Addison's disease, Cushing's syndrome, adrenocortical insufficiency, or hypersecretion. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Proper cortisol levels are important for helping the body maintain blood pressure, glucose levels, immune response, and stress management.

People ordering this test must acquire a specimen collection kit at the lab prior to making a collection. Saliva should be collected at the time(s) recommended by your doctor. No food or fluids for 30 minutes prior to collection. Do not use any creams, lotions, or steroid inhalers immediately prior to collection. Avoid any activity that can cause your gums to bleed, including brushing and flossing your teeth. Consult with your doctor if this is a chronic problem. Do not use this kit on anyone with increased risk of swallowing or choking.
