Saliva Tests


Sep 28, 2012
http://thyroid.about.com/od/gettestedan ... esting.htm

Anyone looked into this? Apparently saliva tests have the advantage of giving us the levels of bio available hormones which is something normal blood tests can't do. For example, if a woman is taking birth control, the level of thyroid binding globulin increases which hangs onto the thyroid hormone more than usual. So while her blood tests can produce normal results, she could be experiencing symptoms of hypo and her saliva tests could be different.

I got a saliva test done recently for progesterone, testosterone, estrogen, DHEA, and cortisol...still awaiting the results. I wasn't sure how accurate or useful it would be. It seems like its a relatively new science, which is why most conventional doctors don't really use it...but I'm curious as to how good it actually is.

I am looking at Saliva Testing and the more I read about it I see how it can be beneficial. I am ordering the one from ZRT labs as it has been around for a long time. I can only help and be as good as you anticipate it to me. I am using it as one resource not my only one for testing hormonal levels.
