The modern world puts an enormous amount of stress on us physically and mentally, too often putting put us in a state of ‘fight or flight’ response, which causes our adrenal glands to secrete adrenalin to fuel a response.
In short bursts this gives us enhanced strength and staying power, but over stimulation can mean they become depleted and this can lead to the symptoms of adrenal fatiague.
Symptoms of adrenal fatigue may include exhaustion, hypotension, a lower resistance to stress, salt cravings, hypoglycaemia and lowered immunity. Adrenal insufficiency frequently plays a role in conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic stress syndrome, anorexia and most diseases for which corticosteroids are involved in the treatment.
Adrenocortex Stress Profile Extensive – Saliva
Turn Around Time 3-5 Business Days
Hormone profile testing is a non-invasive saliva test that serves as a reliable marker of stress response and a critical tool for revealing adrenal imbalances. Adrenal fatigue is a very common condition in today’s society through the physical and physiological demands we put on our adrenal glands.
This hormone test serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances underlying anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, dysglycemia and a host of other clinical conditions that may affect our day to day lives. The test examines 4 saliva samples over a 12-hour period for levels of cortisol DHEA and SigA.
- Poor concentration, ‘brain fog’
- Energy levels
- Fatigue, lethargy
- Salt cravings
- Mild depression
- Lack of stamina
- Sexual dysfunction
- Irregular sleeping patters
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Blood pressure
- Impaired Immune System
Although adrenal glands are designed to cope with stress, assessing your cortisol, DHEA and other adrenal hormone levels may help to identify imbalances and will assist with effective therapy.
