Cortisol operates on a 24 hour cycle so we collect samples at intervals. We can collect the samples ourselves at home or work, and that’s one of the benefits of using saliva for the purpose.

Why use the Adrenal Function Extended Profile Test Kit?
Sometimes referred to as the ‘mini-stress-test’. The constant demand for cortisol due to stress will eventually exhaust the adrenal glands and disrupt the production of other hormones. The Adrenal Function Extended Profile Test Kit is a good idea if you suspect irregularity.
Why is DHEA’s being tested?
The adrenal androgen DHEA is the precursor to sex hormone synthesis, and low levels could result in reduced conversion into the sex hormones. For this reason, it is worth assessing DHEAs when testing other sex hormones.

Adrenal Function Extended Profile – Overview
The adrenal cortex, responsible for producing cortisol, is vital for metabolism and plays a crucial role when responding to stressful environments, disappointment and hostility. Low DHEAs often indicates cortisol irregularity and is a vital clue when assessing adrenal function. The results from the Adrenal Function Extended Profile Test will reveal just how much stress your body is under.
Safety: Saliva hormone testing may be useful when investigating illness but only as one investigative tool in a larger “toolbox”. If you are experiencing pain, discomfort or suspect you may have medical issues, see your GP or attend the nearest hospital for checkup.
