Supplement for Adrenal Function
Hello. I am a 43-year-old female looking for information on adrenal function testing. I have been researching some symptoms and conditions I have had for a while, and came across some tie-ins to this subject. My question is, other than going the holistic route, are there any tests in "western medicine" for adrenal function? Thanks for your help.
I use the standard tests:
- 7 am and 4 pm Cortisol levels
- TSH, LH, FSH
- DHEA fasting or DHEAS is non fasting
- CBC with Differential
The Integrative Medicine treatment is different depending on the exact test results.
