Description

Cortisol is a hormone that is also called the "stress hormone", at too high levels of cortisol it can cause sleep problems and difficulty falling asleep. Cortisol is released during physical or mental stress and helps you perform better both physically and mentally in an acute stressful situation.

In the evening, the body's production of cortisol should be at its lowest so as not to interfere with your production of sleep hormones, and in the morning it should be at its highest to help you get started in the morning.

By testing you, you find out if your body produces too much cortisol, which in turn leads to a blockage of other important production.

This is how it works: The test is a saliva test where you collect saliva on a couple of occasions during the same day.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 15 working days after our lab receives your sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test answer, you will receive a detailed report in English about your values.

Information

Cortisol – our stress hormone

Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands and is the most important hormone of a total of three that are part of the group of glucocorticoids. Cortisol's function is to regulate the metabolism of fat, proteins and sugar in the body. Cortisol also inhibits inflammation and allergies.

As a response to stress, the "stress hormone" cortisol is produced and released by your adrenal glands. In case of stress, the body's production of cortisol is affected, which is then secreted in a larger amount. But the ability of the adrenal glands to produce cortisol can also be affected in the opposite direction. In case of prolonged stress, trauma or e.g. in the case of underfunctioning of the thyroid gland, rheumatic diseases, etc., as well as nutritional deficiencies, a reduction in cortisol production can instead occur, and the ability to adapt the secretion to varying needs can also be affected.

The level of cortisol in the body varies at different times of the day, even days of the week can be important depending on one's life situation. Cortisol is therefore measured on a couple of occasions during the same day.
