By testing the levels of these hormones together, ZRT can create a partial hormone profile for the saliva donor, which gives a more complete picture of health beyond testing a single hormone level. Testing multiple hormone levels at once is also more convenient and less expensive than testing single hormone levels.
This Hormone imbalance saliva test gives you a partial hormone profile, which can give you an idea of your hormone deficiency and health.
These hormone saliva tests are ideal for at-home use where people can perform the collection at their convenience. As hormones work together, it makes more sense to test them for imbalances together rather than testing a single hormone at a time.
Why test for these hormone levels?
Estradiol and Progesterone: For females, these two hormones will be measured together, as it is their ratio to each other that will indicate an imbalance. In reproductive age women, an excess of estradiol in relation to progesterone can explain the following symptoms:
Older women who use estrogen supplements alone can have a deficiency in progesterone, which can lead to symptoms of estrogen dominance, including:
Weight gain in the hips and thighs
Fibrocystic and tender breasts
Estrogen dominance that is not corrected can lead to cancers of the uterus and breasts, and insulin resistance.
Progesterone is present in men, but at much lower levels than women. As some men supplement with progesterone for various reasons, it can be useful to monitor that supplementation.
How does the Hormone Saliva Test Kit works?
You simply collect the saliva at home and ship it to a ZRT lab with the collection package provided (pre-paid and pre-labeled so no additional fees are required), where it is tested by professional lab technicians who then provide you with your results confidentially.
