Fasting Required: Yes – 10 to 12 hours
Why choose this kit? This kit broadly measures the primary hormones affecting a woman’s well being. These hormones also indicate performance of her ovaries, hypothalamus, and adrenal and pituitary glands. More detail can be found within articles on our Blog.
Estradiol: Estradiol is the predominant form of estrogen. Estradiol imbalance can cause depression, increased body fat, decreased bone density and sexual dysfunction.
Testosterone: Abnormally low levels of testosterone can decrease sexual performance, muscle and bone strength, and can increase fatigue, depression and weight gain.
DHEAs: Low DHEA-S levels will lead to reduced levels of other sex hormones and also can cause depression, loss of bone and muscle strength, and low sexual function.
Progesterone: Progesterone regulates ovulation in females, and sperm production and sexual behaviour in males. Progesterone imbalances can cause infertility, weight gain, low sex drive and depressive symptoms.
Notes: If you are testing for the purpose of evaluating fertility please use either the Fertility Balance G1 or G2 test kits. These come with information relevant to ideal test dates.

More: There is no ideal specimen type for measuring hormones since there are advantages to each, depending on clinical goals. In the case of stress hormones, the majority of circulating hormones are bound to proteins and are biologically inert. Salivary testing assesses unbound, biologically-active level of the hormone within your body.
