Adrenal Function Profile

£15.00

 + £ 99 for the test [charged separately]

Saliva testing for DHEA and diurnal cortisol levels at 4 time points during the day is a comprehensive test that can assess full adrenal function. It can be used for identifying adrenal imbalances caused by too much or too little hormone, match tested hormone levels with symptoms to help individualize a treatment plan, retest to monitor and adjust treatment as needed or track progress with follow-up test reports.

The difference between stress we can handle, and stress that gets out of hand – stress vs. distress – marks the difference between adrenal balance and imbalance. The latter occurs when mental, physical or emotional stressors call our adrenal glands to action too often or in a sustained manner, which eventually may lead to adrenal fatigue. Cortisol’s main impact on the immune system is double-edged. Acute stress sends white blood cells to their battle stations to pump up our defences against disease. Chronic stress weakens immune reserves leaving us vulnerable to illness, inflammation, and any virus that comes along.

This fee covers our administration work. We create a pre-order for you with Nordic VMS. They will send you an email to log into your account and pay for the test itself. (£ 99)
