Testing hormones in Australia was once a tricky prospect. Finding a GP who was willing to investigate potential conditions like adrenal irregularity or Cushing’s disease, or to simply help rule out hormonal imbalance proved too difficult for most.
“Sorry, no referral no hormone test”
This reluctance on the part of GP’s however provided a boost to naturopathic practitioners who welcomed the opportunity to provide by-the-hour consultations which would include the vital paperwork (referral) necessary to perform laboratory hormone testing in Australia.
The misconception that we needed practitioners to have our hormones tested was reinforced over time. In essence, practitioners who had correctly associated ‘Hormone Health’, to our ‘Wellbeing’, held the key to hormone testing in Australia.
It is the view of TestoChecker® that some people have sought the assistance of practitioners reluctantly, and the sole reason for doing so was to obtain the otherwise elusive Pathology Referral Form. Note we use the word “some”, as many others would disagree. Nonetheless, it’s a point worthy of consideration in our view.
You guessed it right, DIY hormone testing saves money
In case you missed the point here: DIY hormone testing saves money by not having to pay your own practitioner to arrange the referral form.
DIY hormone testing in Australia is about taking the first step ourselves (and saving money), beginning our own investigations which will form part of our unique electronic health data should we wish. Sure, any irregularity discovered can and should be discussed with suitably qualified specialist healthcare practitioner. But can we really justify the expense of including them unless we do actually have a problem?*

NO! – DIY Doesn’t stand for Don’t Need Doctors
The point often made by Doctors themselves is that we may actually see too much of them already. DIY saliva hormone testing is one investigation most of us have the skill to undertake ourselves anyhow. In many cases, such as for those people living in remote areas of Australia, it’s the only way.
Who can we trust & for what? We can trust our family doctor will be there in the event we find hard evidence of hormonal imbalance.
