Saliva hormone testing is one of the best and easiest ways to test your steroid hormone levels. Blood and urine are used for other types of hormone testing. The test kits can be sent to your home where you can provide your saliva in the small containers supplied with the pack. They are sent out with full instructions. Help and interpretation is available after the test is completed with no extra charge.

Testosterone – code END16 – price £72.00.

Specimen type – Saliva

DESCRIPTION: This test measures salivary testosterone levels, the principal androgen in men, and can allow for the detection of hormonal imbalances related to symptoms of male andropause, as well as those related to imbalanced testosterone commonly found in women. This test can be used to assess baseline levels and monitor testosterone replacement therapy.

Urine Thyroid Hormone T3/T4 – code END08 – price £107.00

Specimen type – Urine

DESCRIPTION: The elevation of thyroid hormone levels in urine assesses tissue exposure to thyroid hormones over a 24-hour period. The urine thyroid test therefore serves as a valuable tool for detecting those patients that are suffering from thyroid dysfunction, particularly low grade hypothyroidism who might otherwise go undetected through standard blood tests. It is important to use this test as an adjunct to other indicators of thyroid function, such as body temperature, symptomology and standard blood thyroid tests.

DHEA levels – code END03– price £53.00

Specimen type – Saliva

DESCRIPTION: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the most abundant steroid hormone circulating in the body and is used to synthesise several sex hormones, especially progesterone, oestrogen, and testosterone. As well as maintaining sex hormone levels, it also helps to counteract the damaging effects of stress. Low levels of DHEA are found in many chronic diseases.
