Seasonal and biological variation of urinary epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol in healthy women

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

There is a significant circadian and seasonal periodicity in various endocrine functions. The present study describes the within-day and seasonal fluctuation for urinary catecholamines and cortisol and estimates the within- (CV(i)) and between-subject (CV(g)) coefficients of variation for healthy women undertaking their routine work. In addition, index of individuality (I(i)) and power calculations were derived.
