Description: In the event of adrenal exhaustion, underlying causes must be determined through additional lab testing and investigation into environmental and lifestyle factors; while also supporting the adrenals with nutritional protocols and lifestyle modifications. SIgA problems require additional investigation into causes.

A deficiency of sIgA may be an indication of intestinal barrier dysfunction, adrenal hormone problems, candidiasis, or nutritional deficiencies. Individuals presenting with low levels of sIgA are at greater risk of gastrointestinal infections, dysbiosis, 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. This profile also includes additional hormones for a more complete view into the impacts of chronic stress on the individual’s core body systems.
