The National Science Foundation's Science360 highlighted groundbreaking research by the University of Cincinnati that could lead to simple at-home tests to measure your stress level.
UC engineering professor Andrew Steckl has come up with a simple test that uses ultraviolet light to identify stress hormones.
Stress is a contributing factor for a number of health conditions, from heart disease to diabetes. Understanding what's going on in your body could help patients, especially those with chronic conditions, know when to seek medical attention.
"“I wanted something that’s simple and easy to interpret,” said Steckl, an Ohio Eminent Scholar and professor of electrical engineering in UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science.
