Get a Comprehensive Measure of the way your Adrenal Gland Functions with the Adrenal Function Panel!
An Adrenal Function Panel can help our medical team at Better Life assess each patient’s stress and hormone levels. The information can then be used to create a comprehensive plan of action to help patients lower their stress levels and lead happier, more relaxed lives.
The Adrenal Function Panel is a small part of the age management services we provide for both men and women at Better Life. If you’re interested in learning more about the Adrenal Functional Panel and would like to schedule a consultation appointment, contact us today!
What is an Adrenal Function Panel?
An Adrenal Function Panel is a precise test that is used to assess the levels of common stress hormones that a patient produces. By measuring the levels of these stress hormones, our team of physicians is able to get a better idea of the patient’s daily stress levels and the physiological impact of those stress levels. This information can be used to create comprehensive treatment plans to help balance out these hormone levels. In turn, this can help decrease the physical side effects of high-stress levels and help improve the patient’s mood. Most of the adverse side effects associated with elevated stress levels are caused by a condition called adrenal fatigue.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Within the body, the adrenal glands secrete common hormones like cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone. When produced in healthy amounts, these hormones are a vital part of the normal way the body functions. However, in mid-life, the adrenal gland can begin to slow its production of these hormones, leading to a wide variety of both physical and emotional consequences.
The most common symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue area:
- Difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep
- Decreased alertness and attentiveness
- Decreased libido
- Frequent headaches or migraines
- Muscle weakness
Adrenal fatigue can be caused by a number of different factors, most of them associated with prolonged periods of stress. Whether this stress is caused by chronic illness or the difficulties of modern life, it can leave the adrenal gland permanently damaged.
Fortunately, Better Life offers patients a number of ways to help combat adrenal fatigue and restore their hormones to normal, healthy levels. This can include a mix of hormone therapy and special diet and exercise plans.
