The test measures four cortisol time points, DHEA and secretory IgA, to determine how well the adrenal glands are functioning.
The adrenal glands produce hormones responsible for a variety of functions in the body. Among those produced are the steroid hormones cortisol and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), which contribute to metabolism and the immune response.
The production of these hormones can be altered by internal and external stressors, and this can result in a wide variety of disorders.
The Advanced Adrenal Stress Test is a non-invasive saliva test that provides a clinical snapshot of hormone function and immune function.
