ZRT Salivary Diurnal Cortisol
This simple at home salivary test measures 4 cortisol samples.
A diurnal cortisol curve is a commonly used tool for assessing adrenal hormone levels.
The 4 salivary cortisol samples are typically collected at:
- Before lunch
- Before dinner
- Before bed
The 4 samples are then charted on a 24 hour graph.
This graph shows your circadian cortisol pattern and helps to pinpoint issues with adrenal gland function.
The Cortisol level is normally at its highest 30 minutes after waking and decreases during the day, reaching its lowest point at bedtime. Those with adrenal gland dysfunction generally have irregularities in their diurnal cortisol curves.
