Let’s talk about testing your adrenals.
Here’s a quick introduction to the concept of adrenal testing. If you have unexplained symptoms, like feeling wiped out, faint, bouts of insomnia, poor stress tolerance, or anxiety, it is worth it to screen your adrenal function.
There are many ways it can affect your overall health, and lifestyle can make a big difference. The first step is as simple as taking the Adrenal Quiz (Click Here: Take the quiz today)
Past that point, the best testing would be a combination of:
- Blood markers (for morning cortisol), and
- ACTH and DHEA
- Salivary tests (for both morning and nighttime cortisol)
In short, that’s your best screen, full stop. And in this article, I want to dive a bit deeper into each of these, why they matter, and what they are telling you about your adrenals.
