Your adrenal glands are located on top of each kidney, and they are responsible for producing several different hormones including the sex hormones and Cortisol.

Cortisol in particular helps you responds to stress and when there is inadequate production of this type of hormone, you are at high risk of experiencing Adrenal insufficiency. Some of the most common signs and symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include fatigue, body aches, unexplained weight loss, low blood pressure, lightheadedness and loss of body hair.

This Adrenal Function Urine test measures the salt content in urine based on the reaction of silver ions with chloride ions and silver chloride is precipitated quantitatively. The end point of the reaction is made visible by the presence of the activator. During the test, the urine sample remains light to dark yellow, and when the urine sample turns to a light brown hue, the test is complete. It is important to count the number of drops of indicator added. Once this color is achieved, stop adding the indicator solution immediately.

The original package of this testing kit includes trial sample of 1% NaCl so that you can practice to recognise the completion of the test through final color change as provided. Make sure to use only the pipettes includes in the package.

It's also noteworthy to mention that while this testing kit offers some benefits to the users, it is not intended to replace competent health care advice received from a knowledgeable healthcare professional. You are urged to seek healthcare advice for the treatment of any illness or disease.

Adrenal Function Urine Test Kit includes the following:

  • Pipettes

  • This test is ideal for monitoring your health through your adrenals. It is designed to measure the salt (Sodium chloride NaCl) content in a urine sample with results ready in just a few minutes – provided you follow the instructions carefully. Your adrenals play several important functions to your health such as regulating the balance of salt and water, managing blood sugar levels and regulating inflammation, controlling the "fight or flight" response to stress, initiating and controlling sexual maturation during childhood and puberty, among others.

    Research shows that adrenal glands disorders occur when your adrenal glands fail to function properly. And some of the adrenal glands disorders that are recognized are Cushing's Syndrome, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, and Pituitary Tumors. The treatment for adrenal glands disorder is specific to the cause of the disorder; hence, it is important to get a medical checkup administered by a professional health care specialist when you feel there’s something wrong within your body.

    Adrenal fatigue and Adrenal insufficiency are two other adrenal glands-related concerns that are often mentioned in the adrenal glands discussion. Although Adrenal fatigue is not recognized by most medical doctors as a true medical condition, the symptoms that are associated with it are just as alarming and may hamper a person’s quality life. Meanwhile, Adrenal insufficiency is considered as a real condition that needs medical attention. This condition appears when there is insufficient production of Cortisol by the adrenal glands.

    One way to better understand the importance of our adrenal glands is to learn as much about the functions and potential disorders associated with an impaired or overactive adrenal gland. Below are additional terms to help you know more about the subject:

    Addison’s Disease – an illness caused by the failure of the adrenal glands to produce enough adrenal hormones.

    Cortisol – a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that regulates carbohydrate and protein metabolism.

    Cushing’s Syndrome – an illness caused too much production of Cortisol.

    Hydrocortisone – a form of Cortisol. This is the drug used to replace Cortisol in the body.



    ***The testing kits help you to monitor your health through your adrenal glands. It is not intended to replace the diagnosis of a professional health care specialist. For your best interest, you are still urged to visit your doctor for additional and professional prescription should you start feeling any one of all of the symptoms mentioned in this content.
