Cortisol is a steroid hormone associated with immune response, metabolism, and how your body responds to stress.
A cortisol test is frequently used to monitor and diagnose adrenal and pituitary gland disorders, such as Cushing’s syndrome, Addison’s disease, and adrenocortical insufficiency or hypersecretion. Normal levels of cortisol are necessary to maintain glucose levels, blood pressure, immune response, and stress management. Hormone therapy and certain medications can affect the results of this test.
