Phases of stress

  • The acute phase is the desire to flee or fight, there is secretion of catecholamines, cortisol and subsequently Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to counteract the harmful effects of Cortisol. The health integrity of the individual depends on the balance between cortisol secretion and DHEA.  
  • Adaptation phase: the different metabolic pathways try to compensate for homeostasis and return to a normal situation, with hormones within their reference range.  
  • Decompensation phase: The stressful agent becomes chronic, the organism “collapses”. Attempts are made to maintain DHEA levels to counteract Cortisol, but the tendency of both is to decrease, which indicates adrenal fatigue. Adrenal exhaustion phase: Cortisol and DHEA concentrations are very low.
