Hypercortisolemia Diagnosis:Initial diagnosis may be made through the office of a family practice physician or internist on the basis of signs and symptoms, physical examination, and lab work including testing levels of circulating cortisol. Three types of testing are available to check cortisol levels: 24-hour urine collection; blood testing; and, saliva sampling. Treatment: Assistance from a professional healthcare provider is recommended. Preventive alternative care may focus on stress reduction primarily.
