Do you feel stressed, perhaps even burned out? High stress over a long period of time can lead to adrenal fatigue. This test analyzes the hormones Cortisol and DHEA and provides a measure of the body's adrenal function. If you are concerned about excessive stress, have suspicions of adrenal fatigue, or hormonal imbalances, it may be advantageous to measure DHEA and Cortisol.

Note that sample collection is performed at two separate times during a day, one in the morning and one in the evening.

This test is not available in this region at the moment.

Hormonal Profile Stress

Product Description

Cortisol and DHEAS - How are they connected?

Cortisol and DHEA are both hormones that are produced and secreted by the adrenal glands. Cortisol regulates energy and is produced in stressful situations. An elevated level of cortisol is therefore an indication of stress. In the hormone DHEAS (dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate), the body has developed a protective mechanism against the negative effects of stress. Therefore, the balance between cortisol and DHEA is particularly important.

When we are stressed and have high cortisol release over time, an imbalance can occur between the hormones, and the adrenal glands simply cannot maintain the production of the stress hormone cortisol. Tired adrenal glands mean that after a long period of intense stress, the production of the hormones cortisol and DHEA decreases. When the adrenal glands do not produce the hormones they should, the body's ability to manage stress and fight infections deteriorates. By measuring the levels one can detect any imbalances.

Low or high DHEA levels

Your sex drive, sleep, stress, and weight management can be affected by your levels of DHEA. Low levels of DHEA can cause symptoms such as fatigue, depression, decreased sex drive, and weight gain, while high levels can lead to symptoms such as PCOS, acne, and hair loss. Since DHEA is a so-called prohormone, a precursor to other hormones in the body, it also affects the hormone balance for estrogen and testosterone.

Note that DHEA levels are linked to age, with the highest level in young adults and then declining with age.

Low or high cortisol levels

Cortisol levels fluctuate during the day, and it is therefore important to take several measurements during a day to get your complete curve of adrenal cortisol production. A healthy cortisol curve should be highest in the morning and gradually decrease throughout the day. However, today, many people are troubled by stress, and it has become more common for curves that are too low, too high, too flat, or even reverse curves. Both low and high cortisol levels are associated with stress. Initially, stress leads to increased production of cortisol, but with prolonged stress, the production of cortisol decreases.

Symptoms of tired adrenal glands:

  • You have low energy, and often feel tired
  • You have difficulty getting up in the morning
  • Weight gain
  • You have low or no sex drive
  • You have cravings for sweets and carbohydrates, especially in the afternoon and evening
  • You have a craving for salt
  • As a woman, you have severe PMS and menopausal symptoms
  • You are susceptible to infection and often get sick
  • You may feel dizzy when you stand up too quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

How safe and reliable is the test?

It is as safe and reliable as if you had it done within the healthcare system. This assumes, of course, that you follow the manual and send in the test within the specified time.

So I spit in a test tube and then you can analyze it?

Well, you'll have to insert a small cotton swab into your mouth. It looks like a pacifier, but it quickly absorbs your saliva. After a few minutes, it will be filled with saliva. You then push the saliva into a specially designed test tube. You screw the airtight cap on and then you just need to put the test tube in the return envelope provided and we'll take care of the rest.

When will I get the results?

You will get the results within a few days, usually within 5 working days, but we guarantee it within 8 days.

Am I completely anonymous? Will my doctor have access to my test results?

No, no one but you can see your test results. Not even we can see them. In theory, our lab can see your test results, but they won't see your name. In other words, you are completely anonymous.

Where is this test produced?

Everything is produced and quality-assured within the EU. Even the analysis is done within the EU. This means that your test result is handled by highly trained personnel with solid expertise.

Linn
I'm not sure how much to write, but I won't go into the whole story. But a few years ago, my little h*ll started. I worked as a nurse and in the beginning everything was okay, but after a while with irregular working hours and pretty bad bosses in combination with not being able to even eat or sit down for 5 minutes, I started experiencing physical symptoms. It was everything from dizziness, difficulty breathing to constantly feeling tired. I worked at one of our central hospitals, so I thought it would be fairly easy for me to check certain values, but it was a complete dead end. It all ended with sick leave. The fact that you can offer tests is actually a sign that something is not working in healthcare, I won't go into it. My experience with this test is that it's easy to do, a saliva test that I sent by mail. I have now received the results and some values are really deviant. I have called my healthcare center to see a doctor, I didn't tell them about the results because I know it's better to do it when I see the doctor. It is clear that I will need help, but I don't know how, but I hope the doctor at the healthcare center takes me seriously now that there is an analysis report. We'll see. But I can recommend the test, for my own part it was no surprise... just a confirmation. PS. Fix your units :)
Sandra
I can only give my highest recommendation, I received a quick and clear response. I have been taking medication for several years, and if it's due to this, it will turn everything upside down.
