Adrenal Function Test

Are you feeling run down and stressed? Struggling to keep up with life and all its demands? Having trouble sleeping?

The adrenal function test measures salivary levels of adrenal hormones, specifically cortisol and DHEAs.

Low salivary cortisol levels are associated with various symptoms, such as

  • insomnia
  • difficulty waking
  • fatigue
  • disturbed concentration
  • chronic allergies
  • multiple chemical sensitivities
  • depression

High salivary cortisol levels are associated with

  • decreased immunity
  • bone loss
  • anxiety
  • disturbed sleep

Exposure to chronic stress eventually leads to depletion of the cortisol resulting in fatigue symptoms. Additionally it is important to assess the adrenal hormone ratio of cortisol to DHEAs since an imbalance is associated with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and difficulty losing weight. If there is excess cortisol over DHEA, this can result in accelerated aging and the breakdown of bone and muscle.
