Once your sample is received at the lab, your results will generally be available within 4-7 business days.

Women’s Stress Home Kit – What is it?

Cortisol is a hormone your body releases when you’re under stress. Getting tested will tell you if you have the right level of cortisol in your blood. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands which are two small glands that sit on top of your kidneys. Along with helping you respond to stress, it also plays a key role in other functions, including how your body breaks down carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. This test can detect whether you have a condition called Cushing’s syndrome, which involves having too much of the hormone. It can also check for Addison’s disease, which is caused by having too little. The tests also help screen for other diseases that affect your pituitary and adrenal glands.

The Stress Test is available to you with the convenience and privacy of taking the test at home. No physician order is required. You may be able to purchase this test with your HSA/FSA.
