I got them from my doctor.  I do the 24 hour test and Fed-Ex everything back to the ZRT Laboratory –  the company that makes the test.  They send the results to my doctor but you can request it sent to you.  The results are in a very easy to read format.  In fact, I have used this company more than once and it shows the progress from the last test.  I think I paid around $250 but it depends on what you get tested. I also had them check my hormones.

Definitely interested too!  This was suggested to me by my accupuncturist, but I wasn’t sure…

I have had one from an endocrinologist. I would recommend going that route because (if you ACTUALLY have a valid reason for the test) it’s covered by insurance.

Be warned though, lots of holistic types will try to sell you an adrenal test, but not give you ACTUAL results. They may just tell you you’re tired. Which, I’m sure you already know! Also, don’t buy into the pricey supplements they try to sell you to fix it! Usually, rest and relaxation will work just fine.

You’re essentially testing for Cortisol levels. If your levels are “out of whack” it’s typically used to diagnose Cushings Syndrome or Addisons or adrenal insufficiencies.

I got the ZRT one from an endocrinologist. It cost around $200.
