Your adrenal glands play a central role in your hormone system when it comes to regulating and reacting to your body’s stress levels. When they are functioning properly, you are able to effectively accommodate and react to the day-to-day stresses that you encounter. During your productive years most of your estrogen is produced in your ovaries, some in your adrenal glands and fat tissue. As you move into peri-menopause and your estrogen production in your ovaries reduces, your adrenal glands are more importantly your back up system for estrogen production. This is why the Reset Lab focuses on the health of your adrenal function, and HPA axis communication.
If your adrenal glands are not functioning properly, it can affect your entire body negatively. Without proper regulation from your endocrine system, you may feel more prone to mood swings when stress levels mount.
Craving salty or sweet foods is not uncommon, as is a decreased ability to cope with stressful situations like you feel you usually may. Additionally, adrenal dysfunction can result in decreased energy, low libido, increased PMS/menopausal symptoms, constipation, a weakened immune system, and not feeling fully rested after a night of sleep
Many physicians will overlook the adrenal glands and monitoring cortisol levels in favor of other diagnoses. However, at Reset Lab , our clinicians focus on the health of your adrenal function and will likely arrange you for an Adrenocortex test or a Dutch Complete test to gain information about your overall hormone and adrenal health. These tests will monitor your cortisol levels over a 24-hour period and help identify if the symptoms you’re suffering are due to adrenal gland and HPA Axis dysfunction.
