Vcheck cCortisol

Cortisol is secreted from the adrenal cortex and controls glucose and fat metabolism. Cushing's disease is one of the most common endocrinopathy in older dogs. To help diagnose Cushing's disease, precise cortisol level measurement is obtained through Vcheck's cCortisol test (ACTH stimulation, low-dose dexamethasone suppression (LDDST) and high-dose dexamethasone suppression (HDDST)).
