This Saliva Panel tests for 11 key hormones.

This is a great test for getting started, simple, painless, and cost effective. Covering a variety of hormones is key because they are all synergystic. 

This test includes the following hormones:

  • Testosterone
  • DHT
  • Estrone
  • Estradiol
  • Estriol
  • DHEA
  • Progesterone
  • Cortisol AM
  • Melatonin
  • Progesterone 17OH
  • Androstenedione 

 

Advantages and Disadvantages of Saliva vs Blood or Urine

Advantage - Saliva tests are convinient and painless.

Advantage - Hormones fluxuate often and saliva collection shows the average level for about the past 3 hours. This gives a very accurate test result.

Advantage - Saliva testing is the cheapest testing model for the amount of hormons covered.

Disadvantage - The hormones that can be seen are limited. For more advanced testing, blood, or 24 hour urine is required.

 

Though each test contains instructions, here are some additional points.

  • Wash face before bedtime the night before collecting saliva, and do not apply lotions or creams that night or next morning (some may contain interfering substances). Use of routine cosmetics is permitted.

  • Do not brush, floss teeth or have dental work done 30 minutes prior to collecting saliva. Slight bleeding from these may alter test results.

  • The timing of the first morning collection is critical; it must be collected thrity minutes after awakening. Begin timing upon awakening even if you remain in bed.

  • Avoid food one hour prior to saliva collection times. Food particles will contaminate the sample.

 

Another thing to note are specific instructions for women and men.
