In blood, mos t hormones are bound to binding poteins . A small fraction of the total hormone levels are "free" and unbound s uch that they are active hormones . Thes e free hormones are not found readily in urine except for cortis ol and cortis one (becaus e they are much more water s oluble than, for example, tes tos terone).
