Symptoms of DHEA-S deficiency are experiencing depression, extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, joint pains, dryness in skin and eyes, weak immune system, insulin resistance, sleeping disorders, addison's disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), bad memory, lower stamina, lowered Libido (especially in females), less bones & muscle mass, less hair growth in underarms and inability to lose weight.
if you experience above symptoms It is essential for you to check your DHEA-S levels and keep a track of your current condition by using the hormone level imbalance testing kit. This product is a painless process as it does not require any needles or other instruments like other blood testing requires.
What is DHEA-S?
DHEA-S (dehydroepiandrosterone) is an endogenous hormone that is secreted by the adrenal gland. DHEA-S can produce various hormones like estrogen, progesterone, cortisone, and testosterone. While maintaining regular exercise it increases the production of DHEA-S level in the body, this level also tends to decrease as people age in time, particularly after the age 30. People with anorexia, end-stage kidney disease, type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes), AIDS, adrenal insufficiency, and those critically ill are believed to have low DHEA-S level.
Our DHEA-S Saliva Hormone Test is precisely designed to test your saliva for the levels of DHEA-S that is taken up by various tissues in your body.
How does the test is carried out?
This saliva-based testing can be done in the privacy of your own home and allows you to routinely monitor the level of DHEA-S within your body. A simple step of collecting your saliva for the test is required therefore you need to provide your saliva sample for test purpose. Once you fill the tube with your saliva you need to seal the sample and send it off to laboratory.
After your sample arrives our laboratory you will receive your test results within 7 working days. Your test result will be kept confidential and your data will not be shared with anyone else.
The pack includes:
- Test Requisition Form includes Symptom Checklist
- Requisition Form to complete including your personal and medical history
- Contains collection instructions
- Vial(s) for collecting saliva
Instructions on How to Use Saliva Collection Kit.
Saliva testing is used for measuring hormones like cortisol, estrogen and testosterone, and 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 bloodstream are 95-99% bound to carrier proteins, and in this form are unavailable to target tissues. 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 TestingRanges Adjusted for Supplementation: Unlike other labs, patients do not need to stop hormone supplementation to use ZRT’s 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: ZRT 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.
