Saliva testing is a convenient, inexpensive, and above all, Saliva Hormone Test Kit accurate means of testing steroid hormones. Scientific studies have shown a strong correlation between steroid hormone levels in saliva and the amount of hormone in the blood that is active or “bioavailable.” It is this fraction of total hormone that is free to enter the target tissues in the brain, uterus, skin, and breasts.
Saliva testing can be done anywhere anytime. Testing that relies on blood drawn in the doctor’s office makes it harder to obtain samples at specific times (such as in the early morning) or multiple times during the day. In addition, hormones in saliva are exceptionally stable and can be stored at room temperature for up to a week without affecting the accuracy of the result. This offers maximum flexibility in sample collection and shipment.
Hormones we test in saliva include:
Estradiol (E2), Estrone (E1), Estriol (E3), Progesterone (pg), Testosterone (T),
DHEA-S (Ds), & Cortisol (C)
Blood Spot Testing
Blood Spot is the future of blood testing and is a convenient form of health and wellness testing. The development and application of blood spot testing allows monitoring of hormone levels,blood spot home test kit Hormone Test Kitcardiometabolic markers and Vitamin D. The convenient collection of blood from a tiny nick of the finger, allows for flexibility of testing at the right time of day, month or following hormone therapy. Blood Spot testing provides results on par with those from serum tests but without the cost and inconvenience of conventional blood draws, making it beneficial for both patient and practitioner.
Hormones and other substances we test in blood spot include:
Testosterone, total (T)
Vitamin D: 25-OH Vitamin D2, 25-OH Vitamin D3, Total
IGF-1 (Somatomedin C)
Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
Follicle-stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Free Thyroxine (fT4)
Free Triiodothyronine (fT3)
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
|Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPO)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
Total Cholesterol (CH)
Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)
High-Senstivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP)
The combo test kit combines both saliva and blood spot test collection materials in an all-in-oneCombo Blood Saliva Hormone Test Kit kit, allowing for a single, comprehensive report. Putting saliva and blood spot test materials together in one combination kit makes it convenient to collect hormones from the three major glandular systems – reproductive, thyroid, and adrenal – on the same day at the optimal time.
