When you're having a hormonal imbalance you're likely to experience symptoms that can affect your quality of life. Among them include unexplained irritability, hot flashes, memory lapses, decreased libido and anxiety. Although these and the rest of the common symptoms listed below may be caused by other factors you can't really know for sure until you see your physician and get yourself tested. 

 This multi-panel hormone testing kit provides an efficient way to determine your hormone levels. It aims to evaluate eight essential hormones, such as Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA-S and morning Cortisol, as well as noon, evening and night Cortisol. Oftentimes, you'd feel awkward to walk in the clinic or hospital to undergo specific tests. You're probably worried with the stare you'll get from other patients or you might be hesitant with having to deal with needles. 

 Either way, this comprehensive 8-panel hormone imbalance testing service could be just the more convenient method for you. It involves collection of your saliva samples in the privacy of your own home and sending them to an accredited laboratory using the included pre-paid shipping label.

This testing kit is useful for you and your physician in making an accurate and definitive diagnosis. It's safe and reliable, with the result being available in just a few days.

Most of the hormones show a daily endogenous rhythmic variation in their levels and the results of a hormonal test would depend significantly on the time at which the test was taken. So, sampling just once would be inadequate to make any suggestive analysis. Ideally, it is suggested that such profiling should be done periodically at different times in a day for multiple days for obtaining suggestive data that is biologically meaningful.

Saliva Testing

Saliva-based hormone imbalance level testing is a convenient way of testing steroid hormones. Since the mid-1980s, thousands of scientific studies have shown a strong correlation between steroid hormone levels in saliva and the amount of hormone in the blood that is active or "bioavailable."

Saliva testing can be done anywhere anytime. Blood-based hormone testing that relies on blood drawn in the doctor's office makes it harder to obtain samples at specific times (such as in the early morning) or multiple times during the day. In addition, hormones in saliva are exceptionally stable and can be stored at room temperature for up to a week without affecting the accuracy of the result. This offers maximum flexibility in sample collection and shipment.

Advantages

  • Saliva measures the free, "bioavailable" fraction of steroid hormones that have moved out of the bloodstream and into the tissue -- NOTE: Blood and urine measure "total" levels
  • Saliva as a collection tool is painless, non-invasive and needle-free (stress caused by a conventional blood draw can alter test results)
  • Hormones are stable in saliva at room temperature up to three weeks allowing for worldwide shipment
  • Transport of saliva samples to laboratory requires no special handling
  • Less expensive than conventional hormone blood testing
  • Ease of collection allows for routine monitoring of hormone levels and adjustment of hormone supplementation as needed

Clinical Utility  

Saliva testing can help providers:

  • Identify hidden hormonal imbalances (deficiency or excess) associated with patient symptoms of menopause and andropause as well as reproductive disorders, chronic illness and diseases of aging
  • Link clinical symptoms to specific hormone imbalance(s)
  • Maintain health and prevent disease through early detection of any hormonal imbalance(s)
  • Establish treatment to restore hormonal balance and patient quality of life
  • Monitor patient hormone levels for "individualized" hormone replacement therapy
  • Track patient progress with comparative history reports provided with follow-up testing

    Extremely easy to perform. quick turnaround time for results. Easier than running up and down to primary care and specialist for repeat testing. If in doubt about your hormones, this is the way to find out.
