What does the test include? The HealthCheck USA adrenal hormone test involves taking saliva samples four times during a single day, which will track the amount of free (or excess) salivary cortisol in your system.

Who should be tested? People in high-stress jobs, or stressful life situations, are prime candidates for testing, since they are at higher-than-normal risk for adrenal dysfunction. In addition, strongly consider testing if you are a woman experiencing abnormal menstrual cycles, abnormal or heavy vaginal bleeding, infertility, symptoms of menopause, fatigue, moodiness, low sex drive, loss of muscle tone or increased body fat. For men, strongly consider testing if you have unexplained hormonal alterations like fatigue, moodiness, low sex drive, loss of muscle tone, increased body fat, or erectile dysfunction.
