Our Adrenal Cortex Antibody test is generally used to diagnose autoimmune adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal Cortex Antibodies destroy adrenal tissue, interfering with hormone production, by damaging various adrenal proteins, particularly the 21-hydroxy enzymes. This prevents the adrenal glands from functioning properly, meaning that they produce reduced amounts of steroid hormones, such as cortisol and aldosterone.
As a result, patients with adrenal insufficiency may experience chronic fatigue, weight loss, and dehydration. Although Addison’s disease is the main cause for adrenal insufficiency, it can be caused by other illnesses such as amyloidosis or infection.
This test is for those who have been experiencing symptoms such as chronic fatigue and weight loss with seemingly no explanation and want to investigate further.
