Diabetes testing

 

The endocrine system is made up of various glands like the adrenals, hypothalamus, ovaries, testicles, pancreas, parathyroid, pineal, pituitary, thymus and thyroid glands. They secrete hormones directly into the blood stream that regulate numerous functions, including metabolism, growth, sexual development, tissue function, sleep and mood.

ADRENAL FATIGUE

The adrenals are tiny, walnut sized glands atop each kidney, also known as the stress glands. Adrenal fatigue results from too much cortisol production in response to chronic physical, emotional or chemical stress.
