Description: This profile is used to assess the adrenal glands and hormone balance, while also measuring the first-line immune defense, secretory IgA (sIgA). In the event of adrenal fatigue, basic causes must be determined through additional lab testing and investigation into environmental and lifestyle causes; while also supporting the adrenals with nutritional practices and lifestyle changes.

A deficiency of sIgA may be an indication of intestinal barrier problems, adrenal hormone difficulties, candidiasis, or nutritional shortages. Individuals presenting with low levels of sIgA are at greater risk of gastrointestinal infections, dysfunctional lifestyle, and autoimmune disorders. Increased levels of sIgA may be an indication of acute stress, chronic oral infection, chronic GI infection, heavy smoking, alcoholism, or intestinal barrier dysfunction.

Included:
Cortisol x4
DHEA-s
Secretory IgA
