You Can Do an Adrenal Test Easily in the Saliva to Know If You Are Suffering From Adrenal Fatigue.
How Do You Check Adrenal Levels?
Saliva is the easiest way to run an adrenal test to examine your cortisol levels throughout the day. You want to ensure they are in an optimal cortisol curve.
The best way to check adrenal levels is to look at your cortisol throughout the day. You first test your cortisol; your first sample is within 30 minutes of waking up and should test highest than any other time of day. Lunchtime should drop slightly; dinner time should be even lower, and at bedtime or around 11 pm, cortisol should be at its lowest level so you get a good night’s sleep.
When you do an adrenal test for cortisol levels in the saliva and look at the cortisol curve, providers can pinpoint issues in adrenal function.
DHEA-S is supportive of optimal adrenal function and tends to drop as we age.
