Are there any diagnostic tests for adrenal fatigue?

Diagnostic Tests for Adrenal Dysfunction

When it comes to adrenal dysfunction, early detection is crucial. Let's explore a few ways to identify this disorder.

Raglan's Test

The Raglan's test gauges blood pressure variations when transitioning from lying down to standing up. In healthy individuals, the systolic (upper) number usually rises slightly.

If your systolic pressure does not increase or decrease, it could indicate adrenal fatigue. This quick and easy home test provides valuable insights, but remember - it shouldn’t replace professional medical advice.

CO2 Tolerance Test

This one measures how long you can exhale after a deep breath – like blowing out birthday candles, except these won't get you any gifts. Check out more on CO2 tolerance testing here.

A shorter exhalation time could indicate low carbon dioxide levels in your body - another possible sign of adrenal dysfunction. But don't worry. If the results seem off, there are ways to fix this.
