The right balance of hormones is essential for good health.
A variety of kits are available at the Clinic to test hormone levels for both men and women. Hormones are powerful substances that control multiple functions throughout the body, and they need to be in balance and sufficient to maintain health and well being. The hormone panels test saliva for the presence of one, two, or six different hormones for both men and women, depending on the need. In the case of women, hormone levels can vary 200 to 1,500% woman to woman, so the results will reveal the specific imbalances that require individualized treatment plans. In addition to estrogen, the hormones that can be tracked include testosterone, DHEA, progesterone, and estrogen in both men and women.
The symptoms of hormone imbalance in women are generally well known, but the following male issues are typically caused by the same problem:
- Premature baldness

- Erectile dysfunction
- Fat accumulation around the waist
- Urinary symptoms relating to pain, frequency, urgency, and interrupted stream
