MSM is Here:
This test now incorporates the Multi-Point Saliva Collection Method [MSM].
MSM Collection: A total of five samples are required to be collected in separate tubes over a two hour period, i.e. one sample every 30 minutes. All hormones [with the exception of cortisol] will be tested from all five samples. Cortisol is tested from one saliva sample only in this case.
Detailed instruction included.
About This Test
Hormones reported: Estradiol (E2) Testosterone, Progesterone (P4), DHEAs, Cortisol (AM), Estrone (E1)
Fasting Required: Yes – 10 to 12 hours. We recommend performing this test 30 minutes from waking due to fasting requirements but also as this is the time of day these hormones are most active. Instructions included in all kits.
Why use this test?
You want to be sure these important hormones are behaving correctly. The results can be compared to the age range reference chart supplied. If imbalance is detected, you can take these results to your doctor for discussion. Slight irregularity can often be addressed by changes to lifestyle and diet.
Overview: Levels of estradiol, testosterone, and DHEA-S typically lower as a man ages, whereas high cortisol levels can hasten symptoms associated with aging. [Edit: In some men estradiol levels fall with age, but in others they actually increase].
The role of estrone in men has only recently been acknowledged as underappreciated. Elevated estrone level is now known to be commonly associated with both incidental and existing diabetes in older men, as it is in women (I). Good balance in these four hormones can make a man feel more youthful.
