Adrenal Function Testing

Learn More About Adrenal Function Testing

Proper adrenal function is crucial to good health. Because the adrenal glands produce such important hormones as cortisol (the stress hormone), DHEA (a precursor to sex hormones), and adrenaline (the hormone in the “fight-or-flight” response), adrenal function testing is considered one of the more valuable diagnostic tests we use at the Health & Vitality Center, a leading wellness clinic in Los Angeles founded by holistic doctor Shiva Lalezar specializing in integrative and functional medicine.

How is adrenal function testing performed?

Hormone levels fluctuate wildly throughout the day, so simply taking one measurement is not accurate. Therefore, our adrenal function testing method measures the hormones cortisol and DHEA in the saliva or urine several times over a 8-hour period to develop an accurate picture of your adrenal function.

In which medical conditions might adrenal function testing be helpful?

Treatment Options:
Based on the results of this diagnostic test, we may recommend the following treatments:

  • Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
  • Custom Diet and Exercise Plans/Lifestyle Modification
  • IV Vitamin Therapy
  • Nutritional Supplements
