Hormone Testing for Men & Women

  •  Female Hormone Panel: A saliva and urine sample test taken on specific days throughout your cycle to measure your DHEA, testosterone, progesterone, and all 3 estrogen levels.

  • Male Hormone Panel: A saliva and urine sample test to measure your level of DHEA, Androstenedione, Testosterone, Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), Estrone and Progesterone.

As seen on Oprah and other health information sources, bio-identical hormones are available for menopause symptomes. They are a natural replacement for the decrease in estrogen and progesterone which occurs during menopause.

Menopause is the result of the ovaries not making estrogen and progesterone.  This causes the brain to make an increased amount of another hormone called Follicle Stimulating Hormone(FSH) which is supposed to tell the ovaries to make more estrogen.  But the ovaries are past the point of being able to make it.  The elevated levels of FSH are what cause the hot flashes and the decreased estrogen causes the moodiness and the decreased progesterone  the difficulty sleeping.

Bioidentical hormones are more effective and much safer than synthetic hormones and because they are the exact replacement for the hormones that women’s ovaries stopped making, I believe they are healthier.
