hs-CRP + Cortisol Test

By Forth

Check your early morning cortisol and  CRP levels at home with our affordable private blood test kit.

Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland and released in response to stress. This stress blood test enables you to check your level of cortisol quickly and easily and therefore determine whether you may be under too much stress.

Your cortisol levels will rise if your body is placed under stress. If your body is put under prolonged stress cortisol may be unable to respond, which can lead to a condition known as adrenal burnout.

Levels naturally fluctuate throughout the day. To check your cortisol levels, this test is best done before 10am or within three hours of waking if you work shift patterns.  

High levels of CRP can be a potential risk indicator for heart disease or an indication of a bacterial infection. Hs-CRP levels fluctuate greatly, so we would recommend regular testing in order to establish your own unique trend over time.

These levels also rise dramatically after an intense burst of exercise, so the finger prick blood test is best carried out before a workout or a few days after.
