Hypoadrenia home tests

Nas:
Here are some Hypoadrenia ( Adrenal Fatigue ) tests that can potentially indicate this illness:

Iris Contraction:
1- Go into a darkened room with a flashlight or penlight, a mirror, and a stopwatch (most cellphones have this feature).
2- While looking into a mirror, shine a flashlight across one eye (not directly into it) from the side of your head.
3- Keep the light shining steadily across one eye and watch in the mirror with the other eye.
4- You should see your pupil (the dark part in the center) contract immediately as the light hits your eye.
5- The pupil normally remains contracted in the increased light. But if you have some form of adrenal fatigue, the pupil will not be able to hold its contraction and will dilate.
6- This dilation will take place within 2 minutes and will last for about 30-45 seconds before it recovers and contracts again.
7- Time how long the dilation lasts and record that information as you begin a program of adrenal recovery.

Low Blood Pressure and Postural Low Blood Pressure:
1- If your blood pressure drops and you get woozy when you stand up from a lying down position, this almost always indicates low adrenal function.
2- Using a home blood pressure gauge (available at drugstores), take your blood pressure while lying down after you have rested for 10 minutes.
3- Next, stand up and measure it immediately after you stand up.
4- Normally your BP will rise 10-20 mmHg just from standing up. If it drops when you stand up, you likely have some form of hypoadrenia or you may be dehydrated. If dehydrated, try it again on 5- another day when you have had plenty of water. Just drinking a bunch of water right before the test will not work?the water has to have time to hydrate your tissues.
6- The more severe the drop, the more severe is the dehydration. If you already have HIGH blood pressure, you may not see this drop, but that doesn?t rule out adrenal fatigue.

Sergent?s White Line Test:
1- Take a pen (ballpoint or similar) and with the non-writing end, stroke a line about 6″ long across your stomach.
2- Initially, it will leave a white mark as you are making the  line, then it will redden within a few seconds.
3- If you have hypoadrenia, the line will stay white for about 2 minutes and will widen.
4- This test is effective in about 40% of the cases, but if it is positive for you, it is a confirmation of hypoadrenia. It indicates moderate to severe adrenal fatigue.

Since this illness is medically unproven take this with a grain of salt, no body knows exactly what adrenal fatigue is or how to treat it.

I have a bear belly.

My doc did the pupil test on me, and I repeated it at home, and both showed no adrenal problems. The white lines on my belly disappear immediately. But I do have blood pressure in the low range.

Did your pupil maintain its contraction? Mine keeps fluctuating maybe that's why I hate lights so much, my eyes just can't deal with it.
The line for me stayed and turned red then disappeared. I'm yet to try the blood pressure test.
