Saliva testing is a convenient, inexpensive, and above all, 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." Saliva is an ideal diagnostic medium to measure the bioavailable levels of steroid hormones active in the tissue. 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.
Simply collect your saliva sample, package your sample in the provided return shipping bag with UPS label, and take it to a UPS store or drop box. Once the laboratory recieves your package, it will take 3-5 business days to process and then results will be sent back to you. This will be either through online access or a paper copy in the mail.
Hormones we test in saliva include:
Simply choose which hormones to test for.
Cortisol naturally changes throughout the day. You can choose to test 1, 2, or 4 Cortisol readings for different times of the day. Each test counts as one hormone tested.
