* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.

Description

Use:

ACT hormone is produced by cells in the anterior pituitary and stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol. Levels might be elevated in tumors that produce ACTH or primary adrenal failure. The pituitary creates ACTH and releases it to stimulate the production of cortisol by the adrenal glands (small organs located at the top of each kidney).

Cortisol is important for regulating glucose, protein, and lipid metabolism; suppressing the immune system’s response; and maintaining blood pressure. Normally, ACTH increases when cortisol is low and falls when cortisol is high.

Diagnosing Cushing’s sydnrome, hypopitutarism, Addison’s disease, ACTH-producing tumors.
