Cortisol is a steroid hormone, produced by the adrenal gland, which is essential for survival. Cortisol is a steroid hormone that breaks down fat and protein and stimulates glucose production in the liver. It helps the body react to physical and emotional stress, helps to regulate blood pressure, to control inflammation, and can affect cardiovascular function.

This test measures the amount of cortisol in a 24-hour urine.
