Who doesn't have stress these days? Stress can really affect your health including leading to anxiety issues, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, dysglycemia, and a host of other clinical conditions. We can order either The Dutch Test, a salivary and urine test, or The Adrenocortex Stress Profile, a salivary test. Both can be sent to you and easily administered in your own home. The tests evaluates bioactive levels of the body's important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. If you have insomnia, this test is particularly helpful.
This hormone test examines 4 saliva samples over a 24-hour period for levels of cortisol and DHEA.
