A breakdown of your cortisol level and actionable follow-up steps
Cortisol is the body’s main stress hormone and a key factor in the fight-or-flight response that occurs during times of extreme stress. An at-home cortisol test is a valuable tool you can use to monitor your levels. This is important because a cortisol imbalance may indicate a medical issue. If your cortisol level is too high, it can lead to Cushing syndrome; too low, and it may increase your risk of Addison’s disease. Your cortisol level may also rise if you’re constantly under stress. True Marker’s kit serves as an at-home stress test capable of indicating where you might need to make lifestyle modifications.
