A thorough assessment of adrenal and thyroid function, and hormonal balance
Adrenal Fatigue Blood Test - Without Nurse Option
Adrenal Fatigue may result in:
- Weakened immune system
- Weight gain
- Low blood pressure
- Anxiety and
Your adrenals regulate your immune system, your metabolism, your blood pressure and, importantly, your response to stress.
The adrenals are two small but powerful glands that sit just above your kidneys and produce steroid hormones, including DHEA, oestrogen, testosterone and cortisol ― hormones essential to health and, in fact, to life itself.
They affect how every part of your body functions, helping protect you from harm by controlling blood sugar and inflammation, and balancing your sex hormones.
They regulate your immune system, your metabolism, your blood pressure and, importantly, your response to stress.
Problems can arise when a period of stress is prolonged, affecting the thyroid as well as the adrenals. Because both glands impact major metabolic processes, negative effects can be far-reaching.
As stress continues unrelieved, the normal functions of your adrenals are put on hold, and their ability to keep up with your need for stress and steroid hormones is eventually depleted.
Adrenal fatigue may set in, causing exhaustion, a weakened immune system, weight gain, low blood pressure, allergies, anxiety, depression, insomnia and more.
At the same time, less cortisol impedes your ability to produce thyroid hormones, so you may develop hypothyroidism, which also results in weight gain, severe fatigue and many other health problems.
Often, treating thyroid problems also requires addressing adrenal glands issues.
To ensure a thorough assessment of adrenal and thyroid functioning, this blood panel tests for the adrenal hormones cortisol, testosterone, oestradiol and DHEA-S, as well as the thyroid hormones TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) and FT4 (free thyroxine).
