Clinical Significance

The secretion of Cortisol is controlled by the pituitary gland and levels are often measured to evaluate the pituitary function and/or adrenal function. Abnormalities of Cortisol secretion can result in diseases either in pituitary gland or the adrenals. Overactivity of either organ can lead to over secretion of cortisol, and cause Cushing's syndrome.
