With the information derived from this test, your provider can begin to work with you to bring your hormone levels into proper balance and help to alleviate symptoms associated with specific imbalances.
To learn why Dr. Marcantel prefers to use saliva testing rather than blood testing for certain hormone levels, read her article “Hormone Testing: Saliva or Serum Blood Testing?”
Dr. Marcantel typically uses two types of hormone panels when working with her patients who are showing symptoms of hormonal imbalances:
ZRT Profile I Female/Male Saliva Hormone Testing
Five hormone prepaid lab kit. One tube, with the specimen collected in the morning. This is a good basic assessment of men’s and women’s hormones and an adrenal function hormone (to measure cortisol stress) collected in the morning when levels should be at their peak. Tests include Estradiol (E2), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T), DHEA (DS), and morning Cortisol (C1).
ZRT Profile III Female/Male Saliva Hormone Testing
Eight hormone prepaid lab kit. Four tubes, with the specimen collected four times during the day: morning, noon, afternoon, and evening. This panel provides a comprehensive assessment of adrenal cortisol stress hormones and total sex hormone function; recommended for those with excessive stress, chronic fatigue, and sleep disorders. The Saliva Profile III provides an in-depth evaluation of hormone balances and interrelationship of your specific hormone levels as related to symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, pre-menopause, most-menopause, andropause, and adrenal function. The eight tests measure Estradiol (E2), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T) DHEA (DS), and all four Cortisol adrenal levels throughout the day (C1, C2, C3, C4).
