Wearable monitor detects stress hormone levels across a full day

124651575 mediaitem124651435Early warning signs of diseases caused by dysfunctional levels of stress hormones could be spotted more easily owing to a new wearable device developed by endocrine researchers in Europe.

This is claimed to be the first time it has been possible to measure changes to people’s stress hormones as they go about normal daily activities, across both day and night.

The new collaborative research led by the University of Bristol, University of Birmingham and University of Bergen has the potential to revolutionise how diseases of the stress hormone system are diagnosed and treated.
