Adrenal Fatigue Testing

The adrenal glands are the key to helping us cope with stress. They are also the first glands to fail under stress. Adrenal fatigue results when the adrenals are functioning at a suboptimal level following constant, intermittent or sporadic stress. When the adrenals are exhausted they become dysfunctional. This can lead to many different illnesses, including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, frequent infections or allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and diabetes.

Cortisol, the major hormone produced by the adrenal glands, provides a useful measurement for assessing adrenal gland function. The Hormone Saliva Test Kit provides a reading of your Cortisol at various times of the day. Come in and take our Adrenal Function Quiz to help determine whether your cortisol needs to be analyzed more deeply.
