Cortisol, DHEA stress salivary Hormone test available in Australia
Are you anxious, exhausted, overwhelmed, and having trouble sleeping? It might be time to look at your adrenals. In our fast-paced world, these two small glands are often left bearing the brunt of a perfect storm of physical, emotional and lifestyle stressors. Over time, this effects your body’s ability to respond appropriately to daily life stressors, as well as impacting fertility, blood sugar regulation, energy, mental health and so much more.
When to test:
If you experience any of the following symptoms, stress hormone testing could be helpful for you:
- Unexplained, excessive fatigue
- Brain fog
- Weight gain
- Chronic illness
- Salt and/or sugar cravings
Nutripath’s Adrenocortex hormone profile is a non-invasive saliva test that helps evaluate your body’s most important stress hormone, cortisol, over a 12 hour period. Cortisol naturally rises and falls throughout the day, so it is important to find out where and when cortisol levels are going awry. The test involves four saliva samples, taken at 8am, 12pm, 4pm, and 8pm.
