Your test results will tell whether or not the levels of these four markers are low, normal, or high at each critical point in your day. Elevations or deficiencies in any of these markers can point to lifestyle improvements you can make to help improve your sleep and stress levels.
Cortisol is made in our adrenal glands and is released in our bodies naturally each day. Cortisol affects energy levels by regulating the release of glucose as a main source of our body's fuel that helps keep us going during the day. Cortisol is also the body's main stress hormone. Your sample is collected four times throughout the day, and your results will reflect your cortisol levels during those times.
Cortisone is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. In the body, cortisone can be converted to cortisol. Both serve similar functions, and their levels and patterns throughout the day should be similar. Your sample is collected four times throughout the day, and your results will reflect your levels during those times.
Melatonin is the key hormone of our sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm. In addition to a circadian rhythm, melatonin often follows a seasonal pattern with higher levels in the autumn and winter when the nights are longer and lower levels in the spring and summer when nights are shorter. Your sample is collected four times throughout the day, and your results will reflect your levels during those times.
Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle metabolism and gets excreted in the urine by the kidneys. This process is typically tightly regulated, making extremely low or high creatinine rare. Urinary creatinine is used as a control to make sure that other markers being tested are not reported inaccurately from kidney filtration problems. Your sample is collected four times throughout the day, and your results will reflect your levels during those times.
