    Adrenocortex Stress Profile with Cortisol Awakening Response

    $280.00

    A Comprehensive Tool to Assess the HPA Axis — Stress Response and Resiliency

    The Adrenocortex Stress Profile (ASP) provides an assessment of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis using carefully timed salivary samples of the hormones cortisol and DHEA. Salivary testing is an easy, non-invasive option to measure unbound, biologically active parent hormone levels. The report offers an easy-to-interpret graphic which plots the results of the cortisol awakening response (CAR) and the natural diurnal rhythm.

    Types of tests

    • Adrenocortex Stress Profile (ASP): Four salivary samples measured throughout the day to give insight into the natural circadian diurnal cortisol rhythm, and help clinicians address specific daily stressors.
    • Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR): Three awakening samples to evaluate CAR with one evening cortisol sample.
      • CAR is a transient, immediate rise in cortisol upon awakening and is distinct from the diurnal rhythm. CAR reflects a person’s ability to cope with anticipated challenges and their perception of control around chronic stress, providing insight into HPA axis resiliency.
      • The isolated evening cortisol has distinct clinical implications. Elevated evening cortisol is linked to insomnia and associated with various diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonally driven cancers, and osteoporosis.

     

    • Adrenocortex Stress Profile with Cortisol Awakening Response (ASP with CAR): Six samples that offers the most comprehensive look at cortisol and the HPA axis.

    This test is useful for

    • hypertension
    • cardiovascular disease
    • gastrointestinal and immune dysregulation
    • diabetes and metabolic syndrome
    • depression
    • chronic fatigue
    • persistent pain
    • neurodegenerative disease and cognitive decline

    The Comprehensive Melatonin Profile is a convenient, non-invasive salivary hormone test that analyzes the circadian secretion patterns of melatonin. Using a complete light-dark cycle, this hormone test reveals abnormal levels of melatonin that relates to various physical and psychological symptoms as well as premature acceleration of the body’s aging process.

    This test is useful for

    • Sleep disorders
    • Depression
    • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
    • Chronic progressive multiple sclerosis
    • Menstrual irregularities

    Estronex® Profile – Urine

    $298.00

    The Estronex® Profile measures six important estrogen metabolites and their ratios to help clinicians with the clinical management of hormone related symptoms.

    Male Hormones Plus™

    $491.00

    Male Hormones Plus is a noninvasive salivary assessment of bioavailable testosterone in circadian rhythm.
    In addition to analysis of testosterone, Male Hormones Plus includes the Adrenocortex Stress Profile and the Comprehensive Melatonin Profile to reveal how testosterone is influenced by cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin.

    Menopause Plus™

    $570.00

    The Most Comprehensive Salivary Hormone Test for Hormone-Related Conditions

    Menopause Plus™ is our most comprehensive salivary hormone test for evaluating key hormone levels in both women and men. Eight specimens – collected over six days – are examined for levels of estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, the progesterone/estradiol ratio (P/E2), and testosterone. In addition to thorough evaluation of the sex hormones, Menopause Plus also evaluates DHEA, cortisol, and melatonin for the broadest scope of clinical insight.

    To enhance clinical utility, in addition to evaluating patient results against various healthy cohort reference ranges, a therapeutic cohort results cover page is provided for the clinician to quickly and conveniently observe where patient results fall in comparison to a cohort of peri/menopausal women treated with bioidentical hormone therapy.

    The Menopause Plus hormone test provides information about the impact that shifting hormone levels can have in women during perimenopause and menopause and in men during andropause (male menopause). In addition, imbalances of other steroid hormones, such as DHEA, cortisol, and melatonin, can influence sex-hormone production. Hormones imbalances can be associated with common symptoms such as:

    • Hot flashes
    • Fatigue
    • Weight loss or gain
    • Menstrual irregularities
    • Loss of libido
    • Changes in hair and skin

    Rhythm Plus™

    $757.00

    The Rhythm Plus™ hormone test is a comprehensive salivary assessment of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone that spans a full 28 days. Additionally, this hormone testing profile includes the Adrenocortex Stress Profile and the Comprehensive Melatonin Profile to reveal how the sex hormones are influenced by cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin. Hormonal balance is the key. Fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a major role in a woman’s overall health. Rhythm Plus is a hormonal test indicated for both premenopausal and perimenopausal women not currently supplementing with hormones.

    Hormone imbalances may be responsible for:

    • Menstrual cycle irregularities
    • Mood disorders
    • Insomnia
    • GI complaints
    • Libido
    • Fatigue

    The Rhythm Plus provides a thorough analysis of estradiol and progesterone over a full 28 day cycle. Testosterone is measured once from the 28th day specimen. By utilizing 11 saliva samples for analysis, the relationship and balance of these essential hormones are analyzed more precisely through time. The levels of estradiol and progesterone, as well as the ratio between the two, are clearly graphed for easy reference and patient education.

    Additional tests included:

    • Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR): Three awakening samples to evaluate CAR with one evening cortisol sample.
      • CAR is a transient, immediate rise in cortisol upon awakening and is distinct from the diurnal rhythm. CAR reflects a person’s ability to cope with anticipated challenges and their perception of control around chronic stress, providing insight into HPA axis resiliency.
      • The isolated evening cortisol has distinct clinical implications. Elevated evening cortisol is linked to insomnia and associated with various diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonally driven cancers, and osteoporosis.

     

    • Adrenocortex Stress Profile with Cortisol Awakening Response (ASP with CAR): Six samples that offers the most comprehensive look at cortisol and the HPA axis.

     

    Rhythm™

    $464.00

    The Rhythm hormone test is a comprehensive assessment of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone spanning a full 28 days. Hormone imbalances revealed in this hormone test profile can help illuminate root causes of disorders such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility, and menstrual irregularities. This hormonal test analyzes 11 saliva samples of a 28–day period.

    Hormonal balance is the key. Research has long shown that fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a major role in a woman’s overall health affecting:

    • Menstrual cycle
    • Mood swings
    • Sleep patterns
    • Appetite level
    • Sex drive

    Chronic hormonal imbalances are implicated in disorders such as:

    • PMS
    • Anovulation
    • Infertility
    • Amenorrhea
    • Endometriosis
    • Polycystic Ovary Disease
    • Osteoporosis
    • Saliva hormone testing provides a thorough analysis of estradiol and progesterone over a full 28 day cycle. Testosterone is measured once from the 28th day specimen. By utilizing 11 saliva samples for analysis, the relationship and balance of these essential hormones are analyzed more precisely through time. The levels of estradiol and progesterone, as well as the ratio between the two, are clearly graphed for easy reference and patient education.
    • Unlike serum measurements that typically reflect both bound and unbound fractions of hormones, salivary samples represent only the free (unbound) bioavailable fraction of hormone. Factors that affect binding globulin such as obesity and thyroid function do not influence test results with false high or low test levels.
    • The Rhythm profile is a hormonal test indicated for both premenopausal and perimenopausal women not currently supplementing with hormones. An analysis of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone can reveal ovulatory function and trends in hormone production. Hormonal imbalances such as unopposed estrogen, high follicular progesterone, anovulation and luteal phase defects are easily identified. This hormone test is especially useful in treatment of patients with chronic gynecologic disorders.
