Cortisol, A.M. - Cortisol is increased in Cushing's Disease and decreased in Addison's Disease (adrenal insufficiency).

This test is often ordered to diagnose adrenal or pituitary gland issues, such as Cushing's Syndrome, Addison's Disease, or Adrenocortical Insufficiency or Hypersecretion. Cortisol helps maintain glucose levels, blood pressure, stress management, and immune response. Symptoms of irregular cortisol levels include abnormally high or low blood pressure, obesity, fragile skin, purple streaks on the abdomen, fatigue, abdominal pain, dark patches of skin, weight loss, high blood sugar, and weakness. It should not be taken by someone receiving prednisone/prednisolone therapy.

Levels of the steroid hormone cortisol are highest early in the day. The Cortisol AM Blood Test should be taken between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.

No fasting is required. Patients must have blood drawn before 9am. Patients should stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection.
