Balance the hormones that control your stress response
Adrenal fatigue is one of the most under diagnosed illnesses in western society, and is estimated to affect 80% of adults.
Stress is part of everyday life and how you respond to it has a significant effect on your health. The most common daily stressors often go unnoticed and include lack of sleep, work overload, poor diet, too much caffeine and alcohol and not enough exercise.
The adrenal glands regulate your body’s response to stress, and if you’re under chronic stress they can become exhausted – this is evident when measuring your cortisol and DHEA-S hormones with this adrenal fatigue test.
The most common signs of adrenal fatigue include exhaustion, insomnia, depression, anxiety, sugar and/ or salt cravings, weight problems, decreased sex drive, more prone to colds and flu, and less tolerance to stress.

Measuring the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA-S with this adrenal fatigue test provides an assessment of how well you manage and internalise stress. These hormones must be in proper balance with each other for optimal health, and an imbalance can be caused by prolonged stress. Cortisol levels naturally fluctuate throughout the day and so 4 samples need to be collected to show your body’s cortisol rhythm.
