Lab Test Description
 

Postmenopause Test

Note: This panel can be used for both postmenopausal monitoring and for women who are cyclying that want a one-sample "snapshot" of their hormones.

Easy and Affordable Home Menopause Testing

The ratio of hormones play a curtail role in the well-being of women in menopause. Our menopause test makes it easy and affordable to check hormone levels which then can help you make healthy changes to diet, lifestyle, nutritional supplementation and hormone replacement therapy.

Why Saliva Hormone Testing

Saliva hormone test is an accurate and inexpensive way to test unbound "free" hormones. Free hormones are the "active" form of hormones vs. bound or "inactive" hormones which do not perform any action in the body.

Standard blood tests only test the inactive bound hormones. In saliva hormone testing, the saliva gland only release the active form of hormone, making it a better test for assessing hormone function and optimal hormone health.


Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) vs. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Women in menopause who are taking any forms of hormone replacement therapy should have their hormone levels checked regularly. Bioidentical hormones are derived mainly from soy beans and/or yams and closely resembles our own hormones. Synthetic, pharmaceutical based hormones are derived from horse urine, is ultra concentrated, and is chemically different than our own hormones.

Either forms of hormone replacement therapy can cause hormone overload. Menopause testing is crucial to insure proper hormone ratios and dosages. Since hormone overload has the same symptoms as hormone deficiency, many women end up becoming overloaded with hormones that can dramatically effect well-being.
