Adrenal and Reproductive Hormones
Abnormal adrenal function can alter the ability of cells to produce energy for the busy activities of daily life. Women who have a hard time rising in the morning, or who suffer with a low energy level during the day, often have abnormal adrenal rhythms and poor blood sugar regulation. The maintenance of a stable blood sugar level depends on food choice, lifestyle, adrenal function and insulin activity.
When testing adrenal and reproductive hormones, there are 8 key hormones that should be tested:
- Estradiol (E2)
- Progesterone (P)
- Testosterone (T)
- Cortisol (X4)
