Saliva Hormone Testing vs. Blood Hormone Testing

  • Saliva testing is non-invasive, reliable, and accurate way to measure free hormone levels and test for hormone deficiencies.
  • Saliva testing is more accurate than blood testing for topically administered hormones.
  • Blood tests only measure total hormone levels (free and protein bound hormone).
  • Blood tests are unable to distinguish how much hormone is free and available.
  • Saliva testing only measures unbound (free) hormone levels. These are the free hormones needed to exert effects on the body.
  • The goal of Saliva testing is to assess your level of imbalance and help determine whether hormone replacement therapy intervention is necessary.
  • Saliva testing is also necessary to monitor hormone levels while patient is receiving treatment.
  • Hormones in Saliva are very stable. Samples can be stored at room temperature for extended periods without loss of activity.
