About This Test [Modified June, 2019]
Hormones Reported: Cortisol x 4 over a single day + DHEA x 5 AM. Instructions provided.
Results provided in both Chart and Graph form.
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 DHEA indicates Cortisol irregularity and is a vital clue when assessing adrenal function. Measuring your adrenal function will reveal just how much stress you body is under. Saliva is perfectly suited for this purpose.
Why test? The constant demand for cortisol due to stress will eventually exhaust the adrenal glands and disrupt the production of your progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, and DHEA. Checking Adrenal health is a very good idea if you suspect irregularity.
Panel Components: The Adrenal Function Extended Profile kit includes eight saliva collection vials. Detailed instructions are included with this kit, including meal time / collection time schedule.
Fasting requirements: Fasting overnight for the first sample collection only. More detail provided.
