Short description: The Sleep Profile assesses two major causes for insomnia: imbalances in
melatonin and cortisol. Melatonin is a peptide hormone produced by the pineal
gland which helps to control normal sleep patterns. Deficiencies of this hormone
can lead to insomnia; however melatonin supplementation can effectively treat
this problem if diagnosed correctly. Imbalances in the diurnal pattern of the
glucocorticoid hormone cortisol can also lead to sleep disturbances. It is
produced by the adrenal glands and is often referred to as the ‘stress hormone’.
The sleep profile is a simple salivary test that measures melatonin and cortisol.
This specimen type has the advantage that samples can be easily collected at
this optimal time for testing these hormones, in the privacy of the patient’s
