Description

ACTH Stimulation Test

ACTH Test: ACTH or Adreno Cortico Trophic Hormone is a hormone produced by the anterior portion of the pituitary gland of the brain. The primary function of this hormone is to regulate the levels of cortisol, which is a steroid hormone secreted from the adrenal gland.

What Adreno Cortico Trophic Hormone?

An ACTH test measures the level of the ACTH and cortisol in blood, thus helping the doctors to identify and diagnose diseases which are associated with either excess of the ACTH hormone or ACTH deficiency. Some of these diseases include:

  • A tumor in the lung
  • An adrenal or pituitary malfunction
  • An adrenal tumor
  • A tumor in the pituitary gland

You should thus undertake the test, if your doctor has recommended to do so to either identify the occurrence of these diseases or to rule out their possibility when you have the related symptoms.

What are the Symptoms of Abnormal ACTH?
