cortisol stimulaton test or ACTH stimulation test is a diagnostic procedure to test the function of the adrenal glands. It consists of giving the patient ACTH and then measuring their cortisol levels thereafter. In a normal individual, cortisol levels should roughty double in less than sixty minutes.A lower peak level can be interpreted to determine if the cause is insufficient ACTH production or insufficient cortisol production.
