Saliva testing can be done anywhere anytime. Testing that relies on blood drawn in the doctor’s office makes it harder to obtain samples at specific times (such as in the early morning) or multiple times during the day. In addition, hormones in saliva are exceptionally stable and can be stored at room temperature for up to a week without affecting the accuracy of the result. This offers maximum flexibility in sample collection and shipment.
Hormones we test in saliva include:
Estradiol (E2), Estrone (E1), Estriol (E3), Progesterone (pg), Testosterone (T),
DHEA-S (Ds), & Cortisol (C)
