Salivary Hormone Testing for Accuracy
Hormones are key to living a balanced life. They are the messengers that tell our body how to operate on a cellular level. Everything from growth, food metabolism and sexual function are governed by our hormones. They affect how we feel and our quality of life enormously. For more information about how imporant our hormones are, here are two articles written by Dr. Godby: Hormones Key to Dropping Excess Weight and Andropause: Male Menopause. Dr. Godby prefers salivary hormone testing over blood tests because saliva shows the more bioavailable unbound hormone level more accurately. We can test for:
- Estradiol, Estron, Estriol
- Progesterone, FSH, LH
- Testosterone, Androstenedione
- Total Secretory IgA
- And others!
