In brief: Over or under active

An overactive immune system usually means that you have allergies (high ige) or a gammopathy (increased immunoglobulin or immunoglobulins) a much more serious issue.
If you mean that you are getting sick alot then your immune system is not doing its job and it is under active. To improve your immune system get proper sleep, eat healthfully and watch your stress level.

In brief: Adrenal test;

Do a salivary adrenal test from biohealth, 4 tubes to spit in morning, noon, late afternoon and bedtime.
Have it interpreted by a functional medicine doctor; also check for hashimoto's thyroiditis with blood test tpo antibodies.
