As you have gotten older, have you noticed some changes that you cannot quite pinpoint a cause of? Are you frustrated with unwanted changes to your daily life, such as mood swings and energy levels? Levels of important hormones naturally change and drop as we age, and it can lead to frustrating negative impacts on your daily life. Hormonal testing can help you identify which hormones in particular are causing complications for you.

What Is Hormonal Testing?
Hormonal testing is a diagnostic tool for analyzing and monitoring changing hormone levels. The natural aging process takes a toll on your body, and fluctuating hormone levels are often at the root many of the frustrating problems. Common symptoms of drops in hormone levels include:
- Decreased libido or sex drive
- Feelings of anxiety or depression
- Insomnia or difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Lower energy levels
- Mood swings
- Unexplained weight gain
While experiencing many of these changes can be disheartening, but there are treatment options available. Hormone replacement therapy can help restore and maintain balance to hormone levels. Hormonal testing can help jump-start the process.
What Could I Expect from Testing?
For our hormonal testing services in California, we use saliva testing. This simple testing method just requires a sample of your saliva – that’s it! This saliva is separated into smaller samples before testing.
Saliva testing monitors the levels of bioavailable hormones, meaning they are not protein-bound and are available in the receptors in body tissues. These unbound hormones are the only types of hormones available to pass through the salivary glands.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most hormonal changes occur as men and women begin to experience andropause and menopause, respectively. Hormonal testing could help anyone gain a better understanding of their hormone levels and the implications it can have on their health.
As we use saliva testing methods, our testing is particularly effective for analyzing topical or transdermal hormone therapy. Choosing our hormonal testing can help women using creams or patches for hormone therapy monitor their hormone levels as they change.
