Adrenal Stress Profile
The Adrenal Stress Profile uses a non-invasive salivary procedure to monitor the activity of the adrenal cortex and its ability to react to stress. The procedure monitors the circadian variation of the cortisol and DHEA-S level. An increased cortisol level, a decreased DHEA-S level, or a decrease in DHEA-S/cortisol ratio is an indication of a stressful physical or mental condition. Also measured in the Adrenal Stress Plus Profile are secretory IgA and anti-gliadin antibodies. Secretory IgA protects the gut from pathogenic material.
Turn around Time – Approximately 14 days.
Chronic Fatigue Screen
