Description

Adrenal fatigue

Adrenal fatigue, also called tired adrenal glands, means that the adrenal glands after a long period of severe stress or trauma reduce the production of hormones – and then mainly the levels of cortisol and DHEA. The adrenal glands first respond to stress by increasing the production of cortisol and also DHEA and studies have shown that DHEA decreases with fatigue, i.e. when stress has been going on for a long time. By measuring both cortisol and DHEA thus becomes important to support the adrenal glands in the right way.

What is measured in our Adrenal Test?

This test measures both DHEA and cortisol via saliva.

DHEA

Too low levels of DHEA can cause symptoms such as fatigue, depression, decreased sex drive and obesity, while too high levels can lead to symptoms such as PCOS, acne and hair loss. In chronic fatigue syndrome, low levels of DHEA are common.

Cortisol

As cortisol levels fluctuate during the day, it is important to make several measurements during one day to get your complete curve of the adrenal cortisol production. A healthy cortisol curve should be highest in the morning and gradually decrease during the day. Today, when many are tired and exhausted, we often see curves that are too low, too high, too flat or even inverted curves. This test measures bioavailable free cortisol on seven occasions during a day, when only free cortisol is biologically active.

How the Adrenal Test works

You get two different test kits. Both samples are saliva samples that you collect at home. The cortisol sample is collected seven times in one day, while the DHEA sample is collected twice in the morning. The sample is then sent to our lab for analysis and you will receive your answer later digitally.

Instructions

All our tests, including our saliva samples, are collected from home. Everything you need to collect the sample as well as relevant instructions will be included in your test kit.
Your sample is then sent to our lab for analysis and you will receive your answer digitally as soon as the lab has analyzed your sample.

  4. Send the test kit to our ISO certified lab and wait for results digitally. You will normally receive an answer within 15 working days after our lab has received your sample.

Depending on which saliva test you do, you fill different numbers of tubes with saliva, so read the instructions below carefully before you start your test:

Estrogen / Progesterone: 1 tube (Collected 1 week after ovulation, normally day 19-23 of the menstrual cycle)
Cortisol: 7 tubes (Collected over a 12-hour period from morning to evening)
Testosterone: 3 tubes
Women’s / Men’s Hormone test: 2 tubes (Women: Collected 1 week after ovulation, normally day 19-23 of the menstrual cycle)
DHEA: 2 tubes
Melatonin: 1 tube (Collected on a Sunday night when it must be sent to the lab on a Monday)

Your sample is then sent to our lab for analysis and you will receive your answer digitally as soon as the lab has analyzed your sample.

If you have brushed your teeth, allow at least 30 minutes to pass before performing the test. If you bleed from the gums, avoid taking the test. Also avoid drinking, eating, sniffing, smoking or chewing gum 30 minutes before the test.
