The Adrenal Stress Profile (ASP) provides an assessment of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis using carefully timed salivary samples of the hormones cortisol and DHEA. Salivary testing is an easy, non-invasive option to measure unbound, biologically active parent hormone levels. The report offers an easy-to-interpret graphic which plots the results of the natural diurnal rhythm

Which patients might benefit from HPA axis testing?

Daily hassles, chronic pain, blood sugar dysregulation, work stressors, and poor relationship quality can alter the HPA axis. Imbalances in adrenal hormones can have a wide range of negative consequences that can adversely impact a patient's overall quality of life.

HPA axis dysfunction is associated with many conditions including but not limited to:

  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Gastrointestinal and immune dysregulation
  • Diabetes and metabolic syndrome
  • Depression
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain
  • Persistent pain
  • Neurodegenerative disease and cognitive decline

Markers Tested

  • Four cortisol samples measured throughout the day give insight into the natural circadian diurnal cortisol rhythm, and help clinicians address specific daily stressors.
  • DHEA is measured once in the 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM sample.
  • Ratio of DHEA to cortisol is calculated to provide insight into anabolic/catabolic balance.
  • Salivary secretory IgA (sIgA)
    • sIgA is secreted across mucosal membranes and regulates immune function
    • sIgA levels and immunity can be impacted by stress

A home kit is provided for you to provide saliva samples.  

Price includes:

  • A home kit is provided for you to provide the sample from a saliva sample.  There is an option to have a blood draw at a private clinic for an extra £35.
  • A 30 minute appointment with a registered nutritional therapist to discuss the results in person or on Zoom
  • Personalised diet, lifestyle and supplement suggestions that will be provided in the 30 minute session
