Which test is right for YOU?
This is all you need to know!
AccuMAP-5 Saliva Test Kit:
The most economical and BEST FIRST saliva test for all women who are not experiencing “Androgen Dominance” or “Adrenal Dysfunction”. AccuMAP-5 is our own panel of Key Hormones and has everything you need when looking for Estrogen Dominance, Androgen deficiencies, and for monitoring your progress. This test includes Estrone (E1), an important form of Estrogen.
Optimally Estrone should not be more than twice that of Estradiol (E2) level. AccuMAP-5 does not include Testosterone; therefore, if you have symptoms of Androgen Dominance (high Androgens) or a history of PCOS or infertility, this is not your best first choice test kit. Please see Saliva Profile ONE with added Estrone (E1) which includes Testosterone and a morning Cortisol level for these situations.
Key Hormone Tests Included:
- Estradiol (E2)
- Estrone (E1)
- Progesterone/Estradiol Ratio
Saliva Profile ONE:
The BEST FIRST saliva test if you are not overweight. It includes everything one could need when looking at their hormone levels for the first time. Most economical test to determine both Estrogen Dominance and Androgen Dominance as well as monitoring your progress of both of these common conditions.
Saliva Profile ONE with added Estrone (E1):
The BEST First saliva test if you ARE overweight. This is because fat cells make Estrone, and if your Estrone levels are elevated, the recommendations are slightly different to assure the balance of ALL your hormones while bringing the Estrone levels down to a healthier level. Most economical test to determine both Estrogen Dominance and Androgen Dominance as well as monitoring your progress of both of these common conditions. If your Estrone level is found to be elevated on initial testing, it is best to monitor your Estrone level with one of the profiles that include E1 testing.
Saliva Profile ONE with added Estrone (E1) and Estradiol (E3):
The best saliva test if you simply want to get a baseline of ALL 3 types of Estrogens: Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), and Estriol (E3). Even though in most instances it is not necessary to keep monitoring Estriol when using Young Hormones Bioidentical Hormone Creams, you may want a baseline or simply knowledge on all of your hormone levels. This test gives you the opportunity to do just that, along with measuring the rest of the levels included in the Saliva Profile One Test.
Comprehensive Female Profile ONE with Added Thyroid:
This is the whole shebang - the Granddaddy of them all.
Comprehensive Female Profile ONE Saliva + Blood is for women who need to assess ALL of their hormone profiles including Sex Hormones, Thyroid Hormones and Adrenal Cortisol levels throughout the day but do NOT need to recheck Estrone (E1).
The only reason a woman may decide not to add Estrone (E1) is simply because she has had past confirmation that her Estrone level stays within normal range of her Estradiol (E2) level. This confirmation only comes from previous Estrone testing. Normal Estrone (E1) is no more than twice that of Estradiol (E2) levels.
This kit includes Saliva testing for your Sex Hormones, and FOUR Cortisol Levels throughout the day, and is thus also comprehensive for Adrenal Dysfunction.
This kit also includes Blood Spot testing (Finger Stick) for comprehensive Functional Medicine Thyroid testing.
This is an excellent follow up test for women who previously used this or similar testing and is monitoring her progress. This is also an excellent choice if you are having a one on one consult with Dr. Karen, who will assess all of your results and their interactions with one another.
Key Hormone Tests Included:
Estradiol (E2), Progesterone (Pg), DHEAS, Testosterone (T), 4-Point Cortisol (C1, C2, C3, C4), Progesterone/Estradiol Ratio (Pg/E2), TSH, Free T4, Free T3, TPO Thyroid Antibodies
