ACTH assessment test (Adrenocorticotropic Hormone) Description The ACTH blood test is used in conjunction with cortisol tests to detect, diagnose, and monitor conditions related to abnormal cortisol levels. ACTH, originating from the pituitary gland located in the brain, is a hormone crucial in regulating cortisol production ACTH levels rise when cortisol is low and decrease when it is high. When blood cortisol levels drop, the hypothalamus releases corticotropinreleasing hormone (CRH), triggering the pituitary gland to produce ACTH. ACTH, in turn, stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol. Proper functioning of the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands is essential for maintaining cortisol levels. Disruptions in these glands can lead to overproduction or underproduction of cortisol, resulting in symptoms of excess or deficiency. Conditions affecting ACTH regulation encompass Cushing's disease, Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), and hypopituitarism. Additionally, certain tumours located outside the pituitary, such as in the lungs, can elevate cortisol levels by producing ACTH.

This test measures the level of adrenocorticotropic hormone and helps diagnose conditions related to abnormal cortisol production. It's vital for understanding adrenal and pituitary health.
