Stress, and especially chronic stress, can lead to non-trivial and sometimes quite serious illnesses, including auto-immune and cardiovascular diseases, depression, and burnout. This is often mediated by cortisol, which follows a circadian (diurnal) pattern, as shown below. 3>
The above graphic shows the output of the Persometrics Stress Reports, plotting your cortisol throughout the day. Several risk factors can be read from the secretion pattern; high secretion overall (area under the curve), flattened awakening response (cortisol level does not increase as it should in the first hour after waking up) and flattened slope from morning to evening (the secretion of cortisol does not subside like it is meant to).

The Persometrics Stress Hormone Profile gives you a full personalised report based on both behavioural and biomarker analysis. The assessment of the stress hormone cortisol in conjunction with your questionnaire data gives early predictors of burnout and other stress-related illnesses. The profile includes full interpretation of your data and personalized lifestyle information.
Persometrics Stress Hormone Profile is based on samples of saliva that you obtain in your own home (five saliva samples; five laboratory analyses in total). You will receive your easy-to-understand results showing your total secretion, your diurnal/circadian cortisol pattern, as well as two scientifically validated indexes: the so-called Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) and the Cortisol Slope. This will all come in a complete report which tells you if you are at risk of stress-related illnesses such as burnout. The report further includes personalized life-style choices and actions likely to be effective for people with your profile according to the latest scientific research.
Consider retaking this test every four to six months to check the progress of any therapy you may be following (such as lifestyle changes or wellness treatment).
For optimal results, the Persometrics Stress Hormone Profile is based on both biomarker and behavioural data: in addition to the hormone sampling, you will complete questionnaires through a secure, online platform. The questionnaires can be completed in English, Spanish, French, Norwegian, or German. This can be chosen during the completion process. However, please note that the report is currently only offered in English.
