This comprehensive test considers male hormone and adrenal stress levels to highlight potential imbalances. A simple saliva test can measure important hormones like testosterone and androgen. These hormones can rapidly decline with age and cause a host of potential health conditions.
An Adrenocortex Stress Profile draws on secretory IgA levels and the stress hormones cortisol and DHEA to detect symptoms of adrenal fatigue. The body’s two adrenal glands are located above the kidneys and are integral to the endocrine (hormonal) system. Stress levels can therefore contribute to hormone function and disturb the essential balance.
Where a stress profile can detect levels of adrenal fatigue and stress, the Male Hormone Profile can highlight the effects of this stress on the body’s essential hormones. As the male body ages, testosterone and androgen can become depleted. A range of health conditions can present as these hormone levels decline or fluctuate.
