Why is An Adrenal Cortex Female Hormone Saliva Test Used?

The sex hormones present in the body including oestrogens {oestrone (E1), oestradiol (E2), oestriol (E3)}, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S and cortisol are responsible for supporting essential physiological functions in the human body. Changes in these hormone levels have a crucial role in governing healthy  pregnancy, menopause and ageing. 

The baseline measurements of hormonal levels in saliva give an in-depth outlook on menstrual irregularities for younger women, climatic variations for pre and postmenopausal women, along with andropause changes in women and men.

With testing and thorough history, one can evaluate the underlying interconnection between sex hormones and thyroid function, adrenals and detoxification by the liver. It has been widely established that salivary hormone testing provides a largely accurate assessment of hormonal level status in people of all ages.

There are a wide range of factors which render altered hormonal levels. These factors include and are not limited to several environmental agents, such as chemical exposure and pesticides, lifestyle, lack of exercise and poor diet choices.

It is worth noting that saliva testing is non-invasive and as such, the patient may collect the specimen(s) in the privacy of their home. Patients are given a test kit along with a lucid instruction manual for aiding them with the saliva collection.

The various female hormones that can be determined from the Female Hormone Panel Saliva Test are the following:

  • Oestrone (E1)     
  • Oestradiol (E2
  • Oestriol (E3)      
  • Progesterone (P4)   
  • Testosterone (TT)
  • DHEA-S
  • Cortisol
  • Melatonin

Why Female Hormone Panel Saliva Test?

Saliva is excellent for giving a clear picture of the inherently perceivable and bioavailable hormonal levels. As such, the female hormone panel saliva test comes with a set of advantages as follows:

  • The baseline hormonal levels can be easily detected and the necessary bioavailable hormone replacement therapy can be set accordingly
  • Gives the provision for utmost privacy as the saliva sample can be collected from the home of the patient
  • The method is simple, painless and completely safe
  • The saliva sample(s) can be directly transferred to the laboratory premises without any expert handling
  • If the requirement arises, several saliva samples can be collected in the course of a few days or weeks
  • The hormones maintain their inherent stability in saliva at room temperature
  • Testing is suitable for both men and women of all age groups

The Need For Female Hormone Saliva Test

Saliva testing is a prevalent practice that has been followed over many decades and its biggest USP is the fact that one can obtain a bioavailable and non-protein bound set of hormones whenever desired.

In addition, the testing of saliva gives the provision for keeping a tab on the hormonal levels apart from usage and effective absorption. It has been established that ‘salivary progesterone measurements confirm applied progesterone is being absorbed, despite the lack of change in serum progesterone’. As such, the right dosage for supplementation and the feasibility of absorption of bio-identical hormone therapy can be ascertained from saliva testing.

Potential Causes Of Hormonal Imbalances

Hormonal imbalances are created by a combination of lifestyle factors — such as diet, exercise, environment, genetics, stress, and exposure to xenotoxins from plastics, makeup, cleaning supplies and even residual pesticides in food. Some of the major causes of hormonal imbalances include:

  • Food allergies & gut flora imbalances: New scientific research shows that the flora in your gut (microbiome) plays a crucial role in hormone regulation and regulating inflammation that is at the root of so many chronic illnesses. If you have IBS, SIBO, leaky gut syndrome or a lack of good gut bacteria residing in your intestines, you’re more susceptible to hormonal imbalances.
  • Weight gain or obesity
  • High levels of inflammation caused by a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle along with chronic stress
  • Genetic predisposition
  • High levels of toxin exposure including exposure to pesticides, harmful bacteria, parasites, viruses, cigarette smoke (even second-hand), excessive alcohol and other harmful chemicals or compounds like lead and formaldehyde
  • High amounts of stress and regular release of stress hormones like cortisol, paired with a lack of rest and deep sleep
