I don't know about the saliva kits but cortisol and DHEA are produced in different layers of the adrenal gland and perform different functions.
DHEA is a percursor hormone to estrogen and testosterone. Cortisol regulates the metabolism, reduces inflammation etc.
I would suggest getting a blood test - DHEA sulfate. Cortisol can be tested in both blood, urine and saliva but some people do not test *well* in urine and saliva if they happen to have high cortisol binding globulin which means they will not spill free cortisol which is they type tested by those tests.
Good Luck.
