Stanford research develops cortisol meter for sweat

Such an invention would simplify testing, diagnosis, and post op care for Cushing's patients. What a world it would be if there was no more arguing with doctors about what our adrenal glands do all day and how the best tests to catch cortisol fail many of us miserably. Think of how much lost hope would be regained. 

"A group led by materials scientist Alberto Salleo at Stanford University has created a stretchy patch that, applied directly to the skin, wicks up sweat and assesses how much cortisol a person is producing."
