A 24-hour urine free cortisol (UFC) test is the most sensitive means of assessing cortisol production rate. Cortisol is a hormone that regulates the immunological system.

Why Done 24 hour urine for free cortisol? 

The 24-hour urine free cortisol test is used to identify Addison's disease (low cortisol levels) or Cushing's syndrome (high cortisol levels) and monitor treatment response.

  • muscle weakness
  • frequent urination

Symptoms of low cortisol levels:
