Special instructionsAvoid stress when taking sample. Also do not take spironolactone or quinacrine. Specify total 24 hour urine volume.
A cortisol urine test tends to be more comprehensive than any other cortisol test as it measures the total amount of cortisol excreted into the urine over a 24-hour period whereas blood or saliva tests only measure cortisol levels at a particular time of day. Some people also find blood tests to be stressful and since the body releases more cortisol during times of stress, the results may be affected.
This test establishes the levels of cortisol in the urine and can help identify Cushing's syndrome, which is caused by too much cortisol, or Addison's disease, which is caused by damage to the adrenal glands and is associated with too little cortisol.
Why take this test?
- You want to investigate to see whether you could have Cushing's syndrome or Addison's disease
- You are worried your stressful lifestyle is damaging your health
