Cortisol levels should be at their highest level 30 minutes after waking up in the morning, decreasing gradually over the course of the day and reaching their lowest point at bedtime. The resulting curve indicates normal functioning of the adrenal glands. Alterations in this pattern can result in insomnia, stress, fatigue, anxiety, and irritability. Find out if the curve of your cortisol levels differs from the normal pattern with an Adrenal Function Panel, which can help our providers pinpoint issues with your adrenal health and resolve your symptoms. In June, all PALM members will receive 15% off the Adrenal Function Panel (regular price: $225).
(If you do not already see one of our PALM physicians or chiropractors, you will need to enroll in the Wellness Specialty Lab Program at PALM. A Navigator would be happy to assist you.)
