Salivary Hormonal Testing

Salivary Hormonal Testing

“Timed Hormone Capture”

Over the past 20-30 years numerous research studies have validated the use of saliva as a diagnostic medium to measure the biologically active fraction of steroid hormones in the blood stream.

Saliva is an excellent medium to measure steroids because it is a natural ultra filtrate of blood, and steroids not bound by carrier proteins in the blood freely diffuse into saliva

    It is known that approximately 90% of steroid hormones are bound by serum proteins and approximately 10% of steroid hormones are unbound or “free”.

    This unbound or “free” fraction is what is in saliva. The steroid hormones that have been studied extensively in saliva include estrogens (estradiol, estrone, and estriol),  progesterone, androgens (DHEA, testosterone), and cortisol.

    An endocrine steroid hormone is a chemical substance that is formed in a gland and is carried in the blood to target cells. A steroid is any of numerous compounds that are derived from cholesterol. All steroid hormones are lipophilic (fat-soluble) and most are carried in the bloodstream bound to carrier proteins that which are water-soluble.

    Blood is a fluid consisting of red and white cells suspended in aqueous plasma. The cells make up about 45 % of the mixture (called the hematocrit), and the watery plasma is about 55 % of the mixture.

    The majority of cells in the blood are red blood cells (erythrocytes). The most important constituent of the red blood cell is hemoglobin whose main function is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body. The other cells are white blood cells and they are nearly twice the size of red blood cells and are concerned with immunity.

    Common blood tests that use plasma or serum are not accurate for assessing bioavailable steroid hormone concentrations because neither the plasma nor the serum contains the red blood cells, which hold the bioavailability hormones. Saliva reflects the bioavailable level of hormones present in the bloodstream, and saliva testing is a far more accurate and relevant test than blood tests in measuring bioavailable steroid hormones.

    Saliva testing can be done at your at your own home, easily  administered, and is non-invasive.
