What is Salivary Hormone Testing?
Saliva testing is an easy, noninvasive method of assessing your hormone levels. Saliva testing has proven to be one of the most reliable methods for accurately measuring hormones and identifying hormone imbalances. Unlike serum tests, saliva testing represents only hormones that are actively delivered to receptors in the body, providng a more accurate reflection of the body’s active hormone levels.*
Salivary hormone testing can be helpful in diagnosing issues that results from a hormone imbalance. Patients with hormone imbalance may suffer from:
- Weight loss or gain
- Menstrual irregularities
- Loss of libido
- Changes in hair and skin
- Hot flashes
