Female Hormones Panel | Single Sample | DiagnosTechs | Canada
This panel can be used for both post-menopausal monitoring and for women who are cycling that want a one-sample “snapshot” of their hormones.
For those wanting to understand fluctuations during their cycle, we recommend the month-long female hormone panel.
Easy and Affordable Home Hormone Testing
The ratio of hormones plays a crucial role in the well-being of women. Our single-sample test makes it easy and affordable to check hormone levels, which can help you make healthy changes to diet, lifestyle, nutritional supplementation, and hormone replacement therapy.
Why do Saliva Hormone Testing?
Saliva hormone tests are an accurate and inexpensive way to test unbound “free” hormones. “Free” hormones are the “active” form of hormones vs. bound, or “inactive”, hormones that do not perform any action in the body.
Standard blood tests only test the inactive bound hormones. In saliva hormone testing, the saliva gland releases the active form of the 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 form of hormone replacement therapy should have their hormone levels checked regularly. Bio-identical hormones are derived mainly from soybeans and/or yams and closely resemble our own hormones. Synthetic pharmaceutical-based hormones are derived from horse urine, are ultra-concentrated, and are chemically different from our own hormones.
Either form of hormone replacement therapy can cause hormone overload. Menopause testing is crucial to ensure 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 affect their well-being.
