Male Hormone Imbalance Test | Saliva | Canada
Hormone testing is important for aging men. Hormone imbalances can be caught early through saliva testing because the hormones being tested are “active hormones”. Because hormone blood tests only measure protein-bound hormones, understanding the true effect of hormone imbalances is difficult. Saliva testing is the most effective way to identify hormone imbalances.
This comprehensive saliva test, by DiagnosTechs, is recommended for men who are concerned about potential hormone imbalances and those who are taking the steroid (bodybuilders).
