What is Cortisol?
Direct (Intended) Actions
The synthesis of cortisol in the adrenal gland is stimulated by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH); ACTH production is in turn stimulated by corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which is released by the hypothalamus.
Cortisol increase side effect:
While it was initially thought that a high level is the result of these diseases, there is mounting evidence to the contrary, namely, that high cortisol actually plays a major role in inducing them, opening the possibility that anti cortisol drugs might represent a new beneficial therapy.
High levels for prolonged periods leads to fat deposition and often belly fat.
Hair analysis can reveal if seniors have elevated stress hormone levels that may put them at increased risk for heart disease and stroke.
