I'm pretty sure it's the cortisol saliva test by Biohealth Diagnostics Laboratory.

Saliva testing is the gold standard for evaluating adrenal function. There are a number of labs which provide this.

It generally involves taking saliva samples 4 different times in a day and then sending those saliva vials off to be tested.


Genova Diagnostics, Lab - The Adrenocortex Stress Profile

Diagnos Techs, Inc. - The Adrenal Stress Index Test

Metametrix Clinical Laboratory - The Adrenal Stress Plus Saliva Test

There are more labs which do this. I'm just listing the ones I've had personal experience with for adrenal testing.

I had adrenal saliva/cortisol test done via NeuroScience: 888-342-7272

It does amount to taking samples 4x within one day.

I feel that the results I got were reflective of my adrenal function.

Not all MDs believe in saliva testing. You could always try the 24 hr. urine collection test initially as well. Plus it can at times be hard to collect the saliva...

If you go with saliva, Genova is another lab that does this...
