Cushing's syndrome is caused by high cortisol hormone levels in circulatory blood and the syndrome affects almost all the systems in the body. The researchers have found a new non invasive way to detect cushing's syndrome. They have revealed that hair analysis can detect cortisol in the people who are found to have high cortisol levels in blood.

Hair cortisol levels are related to cushing's syndrome are identifiable in hair and is in similar to blood and urine and it is a good finding that cortisol is being depositing in hair. I hope this technique further need to tune for 100% accuracy and in further required to study on more patients populations also. It is a one of good finding that can be useful for preliminary screening by a non invasive method.
