IS FASTING REQUIRED FOR AN ADRENAL STRESS TAKE HOME HORMONE KIT?
No, fasting is NOT required prior to collection of DHEAs and Cortisol hormones. NOTE: collect samples at least 2 hours apart from food, e.g., morning collection before eating or drinking, noon collection before lunch, evening collection before dinner, and last collection at bedtime.
This kit tests the adrenal hormones DHEA-S and Cortisol, the master stress hormone. When individuals experience continuous stress, not only from emotional stressors (e.g., marital, financial, and occupational) but also from physical stressors (e.g., sleep deprivation, caffeine consumption, pain, extreme exercise), it can lead to changes in adrenal hormone levels, related to disorders ranging from anxiety to allergies and irritability to infertility.
WHY DO I NEED AN ADRENAL STRESS TAKE HOME HORMONE KIT?
Do you often feel overwhelmed by the stress in your life? Are you usually tired when you wake up in the morning, but too ‘wired’ at night to fall asleep? Are you struggling with anxiety? Suffer from sugar cravings? Allergies? After exercise do you feel energized or exhausted? Do you get sick easily and find it hard to bounce back?
Testing your adrenal stress levels can help to uncover hidden imbalances of the key hormones tied to mental, emotional and physical energy. Testing can pinpoint imbalances of DHEA that contribute to decreased bone and muscle mass, strength, stamina, and libido, and erratic cortisol rhythms that impact mood, memory, and immune defenses against illness and disease.
