Let’s Start With the Problem

The “stress hormone” cortisol is essential for energy and health, working alongside DHEA to help check to see if your adrenal glands are working well. In an ideal world, cortisol levels are highest in the morning, helping us stay focused during the day and these gradually taper off through the afternoon and evening. In addition, your natural DHEA levels are highest when you’re a young adult and get lower as you age. Cortisol and DHEA are the most abundant hormones the body releases in response to stress. When your body has enough of each hormone, they will balance each other out. But if the cortisol-DHEA ratio is not balance, neither are you.

Work Toward Wellness

Before you can restore the vital balance of your body’s hormones, you must start with a detailed assessment that offers real, meaningful insights. Measuring the rise and fall of your cortisol levels throughout a full day and DHEA-S in your adrenal glands and liver helps indicate if your healthy cortisol pattern is disrupted and whether your adrenal glands are working well. With this actionable information, you can take the necessary steps to get your balance back in check.

Panels Tested

Cortisol: Morning

Cortisol Morning is the level of stress hormone detected in the body just after waking. Morning Cortisol is naturally high as your energy levels spike after waking up and the body prepares itself for the stresses of the day.

Cortisol: Noon

Cortisol Noon is the level of stress hormone detected in the body 2-4 hours after waking up. Noon Cortisol is naturally lower than the morning level as a result of expended energy throughout the early portion of the day.

Cortisol: Evening

Cortisol Evening is the level of stress hormone detected in the body in the evening time. Evening Cortisol is naturally much lower than the previous periods of the day as the body winds down and daytime stressors decrease.

Cortisol: Night

Cortisol Night is the level of stress hormone detected in the body before bed. Nighttime Cortisol is naturally at the lowest point of the day right before sleeping as the body’s energy and stress should be at a minimum. At this point, Melatonin (sleep hormone) peaks and brings the body to sleep and keeps it there through the night.

DHEA-S

DHEA-S is a hormone found in the adrenal glands and is important for overall hormone health in a number of ways. DHEA-S works to make other hormones, such as estrogen in women and testosterone in men. A measure of DHEA-S can also be an indicator of adrenal gland health.
