If any symptoms mentioned above are persisting, you might consider using our comprehensive 10-panel hormone test. This test has clear instructions on how to use safely and comfortably. Saliva testing produces a non-invasive use as it does not require the use of any needle or instruments that other testing kits may provide.
Saliva testing is used for measuring hormones like cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone. Its non-invasive collection asks patients to spit into a plastic tube. This sampling method allows patients to collect saliva at home at specific times, which is important for accurately measuring hormone levels.
Why do we test hormones in saliva?
Steroid hormones in the blood are 95-99% bound to carrier proteins such as SHBG, albumin, and CBG. Saliva levels reflect the unbound fraction, which diffuses freely into tissues, and is often described as the “bioavailable” fraction. In many applications, the bioavailable fraction is a more useful clinical parameter than a total serum level. In other applications, such as those where samples must be collected daily or even several times a day, saliva collection is simply more practical. Saliva is preferred to serum in situations where venipuncture stress can affect results, and considered to be the gold standard for collection of adrenal stress hormones in particular. Saliva is also a method of choice for biobehavioral research on hormones and for diurnal cortisol testing, which both require multiple collections making serum testing inconvenient. The simple, noninvasive and flexible collection allowed by ZRT’s test kits is ideal for this process.
- Salivary cortisol is the method of choice for Cushing’s diagnosis and stress assessment
- Saliva estradiol/progesterone is effective for monitoring of menstrual cycles and frequently used in fertility studies.
- Salivary testosterone is a reliable method for diagnosing male hypogonadism
- Saliva testosterone is comparable to free plasma testosterone in women with PCOS
Saliva testing measures the amount of hormone available to target tissues – the bioavailable amount. For this reason, saliva testing better relates to specific symptoms of excess or deficiency and is a good option for monitoring hormone therapy. ZRT is one of the first labs to measure hormones in saliva and helped establish the method that made saliva hormone testing commercially viable for health care providers and patients around the globe.
Today’s Most Advanced Saliva Testing
Ranges Adjusted for Supplementation: Unlike other labs, patients do not need to stop hormone supplementation to use our testing because we have ranges adjusted for age, menstrual status and supplementation types. This is the ideal method for tracking the effectiveness of hormone treatments.
No Pooling: Our Lab does not pool patient samples, meaning that we don’t mix multiple daily samples together to get an average hormone level. Instead, we measure hormones from a single morning sample, which represents the peak of daily hormone production – the optimal time to measure.
Extraction: ZRT is the only lab to perform an extraction process for saliva testing, which separates hormones from background contamination. This is the only way to assure accurate test results for low-concentration hormones such as estradiol.
Setting Industry Standards: ZRT initiated and manages the industry-wide standards program called the Saliva Proficiency Inter-laboratory Testing Program – which enables laboratories to regularly evaluate and improve saliva testing accuracy.
