Why Measure Urine Cortisol: A DUTCH Webinar Event
April 15, 2020 @ April 15, 2020 - April 15, 2020 UTC-7Free
Urine cortisol testing has many benefits compared to salivary testing. A urine sample represents more than an hour of time, which makes it less prone to transitory shifts that may not align with the overall trend of cortisol secretion.
The addition of free cortisone levels, along with metabolized cortisol (not offered by serum or saliva testing), offer a broader view of cortisol production and metabolism. The big picture offered by urine testing can skillfully point providers in the direction of problems with inflammation, thyroid, blood sugar/insulin, or the HPA axis.
DUTCH is pleased to have Deborah Matthew, MD, ABOIM, ABAARM present this informative webinar.
This Complimentary Webinar will Cover the Following:
• The basics of why providers should measure patients’ cortisol
