This panel is used when individuals are complaining of fatigue, weakness, insomnia, headaches, irritability, nervousness, sugar cravings, dizzy spells and decreased stamina. In addition, all individuals with chronic disease will have changes/compromises in their adrenal function. Complimentary interpretation included with results.
DHEA and Cortisol x 4 (samples taken at different times of the day for optimum performance)
This assessment combines a complete adrenal function panel in addition to an assessment of sex hormone levels. It is for compromised individuals who are having the short comprehensive and adrenal function symptoms. It is especially important to assess those mid-day cortisol levels in individuals who are experiencing blood sugar dysregulation, hyperlipidemia, weight gain around the waist, bone loss ,infertility, sensitivity to chemicals and increased joint pain.Complimentary interpretation included with results.
Estradiol (E2), Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Cortisol x 4 (measured 4 times during the day)
This Elite Hormone Testing Panel is highly recommended by Dr. Russell Jaffe. In this panel, you will test cortisol (x4), DHEA, Estrone, Estradiol, Estriol, Testosterone levels, Progesterone — all of which will be done via a saliva test.
Also tested is TSIT, FT4 and FT3 — each of these will be collected with a blood spot.
Female/Male Saliva Profile I with 3 additional collections throughout the day to provide a complete evaluation of diurnal adrenal function. Eight (8) tests: Female/Male Saliva Profile I (E2, Pg, T, DS, and C1) + noon, evening, and night Cortisol.
Estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S and cortisol are routinely measured in saliva. Steroid hormones in the bloodstream are mostly (95-99%) bound to carrier proteins, and in this form are unavailable to target tissues. Only the unbound fraction freely diffuses into tissues, including the salivary gland. Hormone levels in saliva therefore represent the quantity of the hormone that is currently available to target tissues and actively exerts specific effects on the body.
Research has demonstrated clear correlations between salivary hormone levels and reported symptoms.
