Description

What you should know about a Synacthen blood test.

A synacthen blood test uses a special chemical to test how well the adrenal glands can prepare a chemical known as cortisol. It stimulates the adrenal glands to find out whether they respond. Synacthen is another name for tetracosactide, which is the chemical used for this test.

When would a Synacthen test be necessary?

The test can be used to find out whether the adrenal glands produce normal amounts of cortisol. When your adrenal glands do not produce sufficient aldosterone and cortisol, you might feel somewhat sick, lethargic, tired and you might also lose weight. Synacthen can stimulate your adrenal glands to produce cortisol.
