THE IMPORTANCE OF CORTISOL IS WELL KNOWN AS A RESULT OF ADRENAL FATIGUE OR BURNOUT.
The adrenal glands produce three types of steroid hormones: glucocorticoids (cortisol), mineralocorticoids (aldosterone), and androgens (DHEA/DHEAS). Cortisol enables the body to respond and adapt to the stresses of daily life. It also helps to maintain blood sugar levels and promote a healthy immune system. Aldosterone works to balance salt and water in the body. Androgens secreted by the adrenals provide the majority of DHEA for both men and women. For women, the adrenal glands are the major source of testosterone. Imbalances in the adrenal system can contribute to problems with the nervous and immune systems, body composition difficulties, blood sugar irregularities, and high androgen levels.
Symptoms of adrenal imbalance
* Allergies / asthma
* Bone loss
* Chemical sensitivities
* Morning/evening fatigue
* High blood sugar
* Increased abdominal fat
* Memory lapses
* Sleep disturbances
* Sugar cravings
What is Saliva Testing
Saliva testing is a convenient, inexpensive, and above all, accurate means of testing steroid hormones. Scientific studies have shown a strong correlation between steroid hormone levels in saliva and the amount of hormone in the blood that is active or “bioavailable.” It is this fraction of total hormone that is free to enter the target tissues in the brain, uterus, skin, and breasts.
Saliva testing can be done anywhere anytime. Testing that relies on blood drawn in the doctor’s office makes it harder to obtain samples at specific times (such as in the early morning) or multiple times during the day. In addition, hormones in saliva are exceptionally stable and can be stored at room temperature for up to a week without affecting the accuracy of the result. This offers maximum flexibility in sample collection and shipment.
Hormones tested in this saliva profile include:
Estrogen (e2), Testosterone, Progesterone, DHEA-S and morning cortisol, mid day cortisol, evening cortisol night-time cortisol.
