Cortisol is testing adrenal function....many times if you are hypothyroid your can "burn out" your adrenals and they respond sluggishly because they've been overworked.

If you get stressed out eat some catnip and go to sleep

I know it's not a fun test, but my endo had me do a 24-hour urine collection test, then wants me to redo it and have it tested by a different lab. The test will then be for cortisol. I'm not sure what that's for, except checking for diabetes? Any experiences?
