This at-home adrenal test, which consists of two separate tests for cortisol and DHEA via saliva, analyzes adrenal insufficiency or hormone imbalance. Such imbalances can lead to typical symptoms of adrenal fatigue, including fatigue or exhaustion, sleep disturbances, salt cravings, and low blood pressure.

Additionally, it is popular to combine this test with either our Estrogen/Progesterone Test or Testosterone Test for a more comprehensive hormonal assessment.

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue, known as tired adrenal glands, happens when the adrenal glands cut down hormone production after long-term severe stress or trauma. This mainly affects cortisol and DHEA levels. Initially, the adrenal glands boost cortisol and DHEA production in response to stress. Research shows that prolonged stress leads to a decrease in DHEA. Thus, measuring both cortisol and DHEA is vital to evaluate adrenal function and provide the right support.


Low DHEA levels can cause symptoms like fatigue, depression, low libido, and obesity. High levels, on the other hand, might lead to PCOS, acne, and hair loss. People with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) commonly have low DHEA levels.


Since cortisol levels fluctuate during the day, it's important to measure them multiple times to get a full picture of adrenal cortisol production. Ideally, cortisol levels should be highest in the morning and decrease as the day progresses. Today, many people show abnormal cortisol patterns, including levels that are too low, high, flat, or even inverted. This test specifically measures bioavailable free cortisol seven times in a single day, as only free cortisol is biologically active.

How Does the Adrenal Test Work?

You receive two saliva test kits to use at home. The cortisol samples are taken seven times in one day, and the DHEA samples twice in the morning. Once you collect the samples, send them to our lab. Your digital test results will be available as soon as our lab finishes analyzing your samples.


How is the Adrenal test carried out?

The Adrenal test is made of 2 different tests, both in saliva. After ordering, we will send you everything you need to collect the two saliva samples. Then, simply return your samples to us in the pre-paid envelopes .

When should I take the test?

The cortisol test contains 7 tubes and should be collected at seven times during a day, from morning to evening (see times in instructions). The DHEA test contains 2 tubes and should be collected two times in the morning (see times in instructions).

How quickly will I receive my results?

Once we receive your sample, average response time is 10-15 business days to receive results.

What happens if I fail to take the sample?

If you read the instructions carefully before you take the test and it should go well. Should something go wrong, you are welcome to contact us and we will help you.

    For someone who has always prided themselves on resilience and adaptability, the increasing bouts of fatigue and mood fluctuations took me by surprise. The changes in my energy levels, coupled with insomnia, were both puzzling and alarming. While discussing these issues with my therapist, the potential role of adrenal function came into focus. Adrenal health wasn't something I'd deeply considered, so this was a new avenue of exploration for me. Taking the leap with the Adrenal Test in Saliva at Home, I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of the entire process. From the detailed instructions that came with the kit to the discreet packaging, every aspect exuded professionalism. The actual process of collecting the samples, while a tad unfamiliar, was made easy with the provided guidelines. Receiving the results was akin to opening a door to a room previously hidden. The comprehensive report illuminated imbalances in my cortisol levels, highlighting potential stressors affecting my adrenal health. The narrative didn't stop at just data points. It delved into potential causes, implications, and suggested actionable steps forward. Equipped with this newfound knowledge, I embarked on a journey of healing. I collaborated with a holistic health practitioner, focusing on adrenal recovery strategies ranging from dietary changes to stress management techniques. The transformation has been evident not just in terms of my physical energy but also my emotional well-being. For those grappling with inexplicable shifts in mood and energy, this test serves as a beacon, guiding you toward holistic understanding and health.

    After experiencing constant fatigue, I decided to take the adrenal test. The kit arrived on time, and the instructions were easy to follow. I collected the samples as instructed and mailed them back. Within a week, I received the results and found out that I have low cortisol levels. This knowledge has been very beneficial in managing my symptoms and seeking appropriate treatment. If you're feeling constantly tired, this could be a good starting point to uncover underlying issues.
