The PM cortisol serum test is used to detect abnormal levels of cortisol production. It is often conducted in conjunction with an AM cortisol serum test and an ACTH test to help diagnose conditions related to the adrenal and pituitary glands, such as Addison's Disease, Cushing's Syndrome, Adrenocortical Insufficiency, and Hypersecretion.

This test requires a blood sample to be drawn in the late afternoon and does not require fasting. The results are typically delivered within one to two days. Walk-In Lab's PM cortisol serum test is a confidential, convenient, and affordable option for those without insurance or a doctor's order.

Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland and is known as the major adrenal glucocorticoid steroid hormone. It is controlled by feedback mechanisms from the pituitary ACTH and the hypothalamus. Proper cortisol levels are important for maintaining healthy stress levels, immune responses, glucose levels, and blood pressure. There are multiple causes of low cortisol, including pituitary damage or failure, metabolic errors, or destruction of the adrenal gland. High cortisol levels can be caused by adrenal adenomas, overproduction of ACTH by the pituitary, or production of ACTH by a tumor. The diagnosis of hypoadrenalism usually requires confirmation with an ACTH stimulation test due to the circadian rhythms of cortisol and other factors.
