Adrenocortex Stress Profile | Pathology


The Adrenocortex Stress Profile uses a simple and non-invasive saliva test to detect adrenal stress. Drawing on secretory IgA levels and stress hormones cortisol and DHEA, this assessment can detect symptoms of adrenal fatigue and indicate how the body is coping with general stress.




The Adrenocortex assessment can identify markers of stress response and reveal adrenal imbalances. This hormone profile requires a non-invasive saliva test to produce a reliable measure of the stresses put on the adrenal glands. 

The body’s two adrenal glands are located above the kidneys, and play an important role in the endocrine (hormonal) system. A range of lifestyle, physical and psychological stresses can demand a lot of these glands, often resulting in depletion or adrenal fatigue. 

The Adrenocortex Stress Profile can highlight common cases of adrenal fatigue, and therefore serves as a critical tool for detecting related conditions like anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, obesity and dysglycemia. 

A single saliva set evaluates the bioactive levels of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This test expands on basic Adrenocortex assessments as it includes secretory IgA levels, which can suggest how various stresses are impacting the body’s ability to function and perform to its potential.
