Saliva Hormone Testing

OUR GUIDELINES FOR SALIVA HORMONE TESTING

- Saliva hormone testing is most useful for uncovering hormone imbalance. For example: discovering a woman lacks enough progesterone to balance her high estradiol levels or; that high cortisol levels are interfering with the action of progesterone and testosterone.
- Once the nature of the hormone imbalance has been determined, bio-identical hormone therapy can be instituted using the lowest effective dose. At this point, the patient’s symptoms become a guide to dosage adjustment.
- Saliva testing can also be used to determine whether hormone levels are too high or too low as a result of supplementation, but the actual amount of the dosage adjustment will be symptom driven. In other words, if hormone levels are above range, a dosage reduction is indicated, but the practitioner makes his or her best estimation as to the amount of reduction, and carefully monitors patient symptoms to ensure that adjustments are reasonable.

IS SALIVA HORMOME TESTING RELIBALE?

Occasionally, articles surface that question the validity of saliva hormone testing. Before accepting any denunciation of saliva testing as fact, it is important to consider the following:
- Such articles generally ignore the huge weight of evidence in favour of salivary analysis.
- There is significant evidence in favour of the validity of saliva hormone testing.
- Existing evidence overwhelmingly attests to the reliability of salivary hormone analysis.
- The quality of the assay (and the laboratory performing the assay) is critical to determining the reliability of the results.

There is also controversy regarding how saliva hormone tests are to be used. That is, are they useful for determining hormone doses? Our guidelines for the use of saliva hormone tests are:
- Saliva hormone testing is most useful for uncovering hormone imbalance. For example: discovering a woman lacks enough progesterone to balance her high estradiol levels or; that high cortisol levels are interfering with the action of progesterone and testosterone.
- Once the nature of the hormone imbalance has been determined, bio-identical hormone therapy can be instituted using the lowest effective dose. At this point, the patient’s symptoms become a guide to dosage adjustment.
- Saliva testing can also be used to determine whether hormone levels are too high or too low as a result of supplementation, but the actual amount of the dosage adjustment will be symptom driven. In other words, if hormone levels are above range, a dosage reduction is indicated, but the practitioner makes his or her best estimation as to the amount of reduction, and carefully monitors patient symptoms to ensure that adjustments are reasonable.

Saliva hormone testing is here to stay. It is reliable, non-invasive, can be done in the home, and is stable at room temperature. Thousands of men and women have benefited from saliva hormone testing, but there are many more with hormone issues who may require testing. Practitioners have a great opportunity to help men and women achieve hormone balance.
