Adrenal Glands and Hormone
The adrenal gland, aka the ‘stress gland’, enables the body to cope with stress and response to sudden changes within our environment. The key hormones involved:
(primarily finetunes our response to everyday stress)
(precursors of sex hormones; balances negative effects of high cortisol)
(mobilize body’s “fight” or “flight” response in emergency)
Healthy Adrenal Secretion Pattern
When our lives are balanced by optimal nutrition, exercise and enough sleep, the adrenals perform for us 24/7. The secretion pattern of stress hormones reveals the stress conditions and adrenal health.
As illustrated in graph, a health pattern should be increasing during sleep and dropping when awake till night.
When we are out of balance and burning the candle at both ends, the adrenals become malfunction. The secretion pattern of cortisol would be disrupted.
Are you troubled with the following problems?
• Aches and allergies
• Unknown pains
• Sleep disturbances (tired in morning but insomnia at night)
• Irritability & anxiety
• Weight gain in waist
• Frequent fatigue
• Chemical sensitivity
• Bone loss
• Sugar/ food cravings
• Frequent infections and hard to recover fully
• Autoimmune diseases
• Poor concentration
• Low libido
If you are troubled with any 3 problems of the above,
Your might be having adrenal imbalance, leading to ‘Adrenal fatigue’!
Hormones issues related to weight problems
Adrenal in balance:
Produce adequate hormones to power you through the day, taking stress in stride. Energy production, immunity, bone and muscle building, mental focus, sleep cycle and sex drive are related to these hormones.
Adrenal out of balance:
Under constant stress, the body releases the elevated amount of stress hormones. If the stress persists, the body may not able to make more stress hormones (adrenal fatigue). We will then sleep fitfully, get sick easily, and weight gain around the waist.
Long term Stress Effects
If stress remains high, health and immunity against illness will steadily weaken, and the body remain in survival mode:
＊Increases alertness (sleeping difficulties)
＊Increases appetite (overeating)
＊Increases fat reserve (more belly fat)
HK BioTek Technology Competence
• Sample will be sent to ZRT Laboratory in the United States for analysis, which is the only specialty hormone laboratory to have qualified for the CDC’s Hormone Standardization Program (HoSt).
• All hormone test are analysed with reference ranges for individual patient ages, menstrual status, and hormone supplementation.
• ZRT is the only laboratory to perform an extraction process for saliva testing, which separates hormones from background contamination. This ensures accurate test results for low-concentration hormones
Saliva samples are used for a comprehensive assessment to unlock the relationship between adrenal fatigue and hormones.
The report suggests how to improve the situations.
Combine with healthcare professional’s consultation, you can achieve the optimal health in a simple way!

The Test Process
1. What causes stress?
It usually comes from outside in the form of a natural disaster. Continuous stress from either emotional stressors (e.g. work or school), or physical stressors (e.g. Sleep loss or pain) can lead to changes in adrenal hormone levels. This can contribute to disorders ranging from anxiety to infertility.
2. Why the balance of adrenals is so important?
Adrenals in balance produce adequate amounts of DHEA and cortisol to generate energy through the day, taking stress in stride. This impacts every process in the body, from energy production and immune activity to cellular maintenance and repair.
3. How does Adrenal Stress Profile help me?
This assessment allows pinpointing the issues with adrenal gland function as its balance produces adequate amounts of hormones impacts every process in the body.
