Saliva Hormone Test
As with the blood tests saliva hormone testing can be used to provide information on both male and female sex hormones and the adrenal hormones. The advantage of saliva testing is that samples can be taken at several times during the day thus giving a more complete picture of bodily function and highlighting diurnal variations.
It is important for women to analyse sex hormone levels even if they are pre-menopausal, since this provides essential information on the body's natural levels, thus facilitating a truly individualised hormone replacement therapy if it is needed in later life.
Peri and post menopausal hormone testing is essential in order to determine the amounts of replacement hormones needed for successful bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone testing is also pivotal in the treatment of male problems such as enlarged prostate, decreased urine flow and loss of or decreased erections.
Examination of the adrenal hormones is necessary for the successful diagnosis and treatment of adrenal fatigue or "burn out syndrome". This is an increasingly common condition in today's world, often caused by prolonged stress or overwork.
