Adrenal Hormone Profile [Saliva]

IMPORTANT: Hormone samples are required to be dropped off at one of our Accredited Collection Centres, currently available in Victoria, South Australia, NSW, WA and NT. Visit our Collection Centre Locator page to find one closest to you.

The Adrenal Hormone Profile is intended to help assess adrenal function via the evaluation of DHEA levels and Cortisol levels throughout the day. The test requires four samples of saliva to be collected over one day in order to test cortisol levels. The table indicates the times recommended for the patient to collect samples, however times are at the preference of the referring practitioner. If a patient experiences fatigue or adrenalized symptoms at a specific time of the day, collection time can be altered so that a sample can be taken at this time.

Hormones Included:

  • DHEA-S
  • Cortisol (4 times of the day)
