Hormone Testing via DiagnosTechs
Bone Health Panel
The Bone Health Panel uses convenient, non-invasive testing of your saliva to evaluate estrogen (estradiol), progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol, and follicle-stimulating hormone. In tandem, we measure Pyrilinks-D from urine, which is a sensitive indicator of bone loss and provides valuable information about your bone health. The biomarkers assessed by the Bone Health Panel provide valuable data for patients who may be at risk for osteopenia or osteoporosis. It also offers an objective way to monitor the efficacy of bone loss treatment strategies including the correction of hormonal abnormalities, vitamin and mineral supplementation, dietary and lifestyle changes, and/or pharmacologic interventions. The bone Health Panel can detect decreases in bone density at an early stage allowing intervention before acute symptoms appear, and in contrast to traditional screening, our panel is noninvasive and does not involve x-ray radiation or blood draws.
Adrenal Stress Index
If you suffer from chronic stress, insomnia, anxiety, and fatigue, or having trouble losing weight, the SI Panel helps discover the causes, by measuring cortisol and five other hormones through saliva over 24 hours. Saliva is the best method for measuring free, active levels of cortisol, the collection process is non-invasive and painless, samples can be collected anywhere (home, office or anywhere in between) and 24-hour measurement provides a more complete image of your body’s stress response.
This panel measures the overall health and function of the gastrointestinal tract non-invasively with up to 22 separate diagnostic and screening tests of stool and saliva samples. This panel addresses the pathogen screening for bacteria, yeast, and various parasites, digestion-related screens for enzyme levels, and immuno-chemical markers for sensitivity to common offending foods.
The Male Hormone Panel gets information about your hormone levels that can be valuable when evaluating for conditions related to infertility, sexual dysfunction, and andropause - an age-related decline in male hormone levels. This test is affordable and less expensive than blood or urine tests, the noninvasive testing is pain-free, and saliva samples can be collected anywhere and at any time, the results are more clinically reflective of your unbound, bioavailable hormone levels and needs. The results can lead to an individualized and customized treatment plan, and with salivary hormone testing, guesswork is minimized. this panel can be helpful to evaluate patients with decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, sleep disorders, decreased muscle mass and strength, general fatigue/decreased energy, hair loss or thinning, increased fat accumulation, and urinary problems.
The Female Hormone Panels range from a single sample to 11 saliva samples taken throughout the menstrual cycle to assess hormones that play a key role in the female production function. Many women suffer from hormonal imbalance in the estrogen to progesterone ratio. The panels can define the hormonal state with extreme accuracy which, in turn, provides specific insights for appropriate intervention to relieve hormonal imbalance and symptoms. This panel can be helpful with patients with an irregular or painful period, infertility or miscarriage, premenstrual syndrome (mood changes, breast tenderness, water retention, uterine cramping), low libido, facial hair growth, once, and migraines.
