A saliva test designed to measure the levels of the hormone cortisol, taken four times in a 24-hour period (morning, noon, evening, and nighttime). The adrenal gland produces the hormone cortisol in response to stress. Prolonged high cortisol production can lead to chronic fatigue, "adrenal burnout" and other health problems. This test samples cortisol levels at 4 times throughout a day, revealing a complete daily cycle.
Same as the Diurnal Cortisol 4x Stress test, which measures a complete daily cortisol cycle, plus DHEA-S which is also an indicator of adrenal health. Low DHEA-S can lead to chronic fatigue and weight gain. High DHEA-S levels can promote androgen (male) features in women, and is an indicator of adrenal tumors and PCOS.
The test includes 6 collections of cortisol throughout the day. To capture this response, three – rather than one – morning saliva collections are needed to properly chart the diurnal cortisol curve within 60 minutes of awakening.
This test deeply investigates the production and processing of the stress hormone cortisol. It can indicate health of the adrenal glands as well as how far reaching chronic stress is affecting the body physically, down to the tissue level. This panel includes DHEA test, to further assess adrenal health. You will want to consider this test if you have recently shown normal range saliva cortisol levels but still experience symptoms of adrenal dysfunction such as chronic anxiety, sleep issues, irregular heart rate and abnormal blood pressure. Collection is done at four times throughout a day, getting a full daily cycle reading.
Tests the 3 major sex hormones estradiol (E2), progesterone and testosterone. Plus adrenal hormones DHEA-S and diurnal cortisol (4x), showing your full daily cortisol cycle.
This test can provide insight into your sex hormone levels and stress levels at the same time.
The Women's Sex & Stress Hormone Panel is especially designed for women experiencing symptoms of estrogen hormone imbalance, often during perimenopause or menopause. Assessing the three estrogens: estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), and estriol (E3) is important for a wide angle view of female sex hormone balance. Progesterone testing is also included.
As stress can strongly affect female hormones, the adrenal hormone cortisol is tested four times, showing a full daily cycle of this stress hormone.
Reveals whether hormones are your hidden barrier to restful sleep. Measures both cortisol and melatonin at 4 times throughout a day – providing an accurate 24-hour sleep-wake pattern evaluation.
