Stress, work, at deskAdrenal 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)
  • DHEA-S
  • Cortisol (X4)
