Saliva Hormone Testing - Perimenopause, Menopause and Andropause


HORMONE TESTING FOR WOMEN AND FOR MEN

This page provides products and information to help you measure your hormone levels. While laboratories measure hormones in several ways, research indicates that the most accurate way to do so is through saliva. To learn why we recommend saliva hormone testing, read the article by John R. Lee, M.D. about this matter.

Knowing your saliva hormone levels is an important first step in assessing where your hormones may be out of balance and determining whether your current natural hormone regimen is working for you. If you are wondering whether certain symptoms may be due to a hormone imbalance, this is a quick, easy, and accurate way to find out.

If you are not a healthcare provider and want to test your hormone levels, this page provides you with a fast, simple and accurate way to do so. You can purchase the test kits online and they will be promptly mailed to you with specific instructions. The kits come from ZRT Laboratory, a respected provider of hormone testing products. For help in deciding which saliva tests you should order, feel free to take our online Hormone Balance Test.

If you are a healthcare provider and want to order saliva tests for your patients, we recommend that you contact Labrix Clinical Services or ZRT Laboratory. Both companies offer advanced testing technologies to healthcare providers.

NOTE: New York State Residents
New York State health law prohibits the testing of specimens collected in or mailed from New York, and prohibits the transmission of data from our laboratory to NY physicians or residents. Therefore, direct receipt of lab results for NY residents is not possible.

Estrogen dominance, a syndrome that Dr. John Lee was the first to identify, is a condition where estrogen levels are higher than they should be relative to progesterone levels. This test measures both estrogen and progesterone by testing Estradiol (E2), the most potent estrogen, and Progesterone (Pg). The test results give you the levels for both hormones and the all-important ratio between the two. Learn more about estrogen dominance.
