Post-Menopause Hormone Panel (saliva) Lab
Various body parts undergo change and can produce one or more of the following symptoms:
Hot flashes / sweats
Changes in sex drive
skin aging / cosmetic changes
Altered fat and carbohydrate metabolism
What can you do about it?
The first step is to find out what your hormone levels are. Saliva testing is best because saliva hormone values reflect the tissue concentration of your hormones. Blood and serum contains the total hormone, but your tissues are only bathed with the active or effective fraction as found in saliva. Active fraction measurements are superior to blood and urine measurements both in diagnosis and treatment.
Why should you test?
Hormones are powerful substances that control multiple functions throughout the body. Hormone levels should be sufficient and balanced. Too much or too little of them is not conducive to long-term emotional, mental and bodily health. The goal is to achieve appropriate and compatible physiologic levels of several hormones. This will increase sense of "well being" by removing underlying hormone deficit and imbalances.
What do we test for?
There are 6 hormone levels that are checked: Estriol, Estradiol, Estrone, Progesterone, Testosterone and DHEA. One saliva sample is collected.
The kit comes with the collection vial, complete instructions and a prepaid return box. Results are usually returned to you in 2-3 weeks.
How do you benefit?
There are five distinct areas that you will benefit from using the saliva tests:
They are affordable and less expensive than blood or urine tests.
Collection procedure spares you the pain of venipunctures with a needle.
Results are more clinically reflective of your hormone status and needs.
Results can lead to an individualized and customized natural support plan.
With salivary hormone testing, guesswork is past news.
