Alterations in the patterning of diurnal cortisol secretion are associated with poor health in clinical populations with 'flat' patterns a particular risk. Flatter patterns in cortisol secretion may reflect impaired negative feedback in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. The correlates of discrete clusters of patterns in the diurnal secretion of cortisol have not been well described in large community dwelling populations. We describe discrete clusters of patterns of cortisol secretion… CONTINUE READING
