Female/Male Saliva Profile I, II, III (Saliva Testing Kits)

$170.00$260.00

Good basic assessment of sex steroid and adrenal hormones collected in the morning when levels should be at their peak. Five (5) Tests: Estradiol (E2), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T), DHEA-S, and Cortisol (C1) up to 4x daily.

Saliva testing measures the hormones that are bioavailable at the tissue, available for absorption so they can create a hormonal response.

Blood (serum) testing measures the total level of a specific hormone in the bloodstream, not the bioavailable level. Hormones are partially bound to a protein as they travel through the bloodstream, and are not free to reach the tissue and create a hormonal response.

*It is very important to measure the amount that is bioavailable.

Serum vs. Saliva:

“With saliva measuring the bioavailable (non-protein-bound) fraction of circulating hormones that can freely diffuse into tissues, it provides a more accurate assessment of topical hormone supplementation than serum. Serum levels do not rise significantly after topical dosing. By contrast, saliva levels do — reflecting tissue delivery of the topically delivered hormone.”

Reasons You May Want Saliva Testing

Female/Male Saliva Profile measures hormones from a single morning saliva sample, which represents the peak of daily hormone production – the optimal time to measure. Unlike other labs, patients do not need to stop hormone supplementation to use Female/Male Saliva Profile’s testing because we have ranges adjusted for age, menstrual status and supplementation types. This is the ideal method for tracking the effectiveness of hormone therapies. What is tested?
