Male Hormone Panel (Saliva)
This test measures the levels of the androgen male hormones DHEA, androstenedione, testosterone, dihydrotestosterone(DHT), estrogen, LH and FSH.
This test is useful for male hormone issues related to andropause, low libido, weight gain, fatigue, muscle soreness, depression or mood disorders, male breast enlargement, mid-section weight gain and for prevention of further hormone related health problems.
Men can have symptoms of “andropause” at any age when their hormones shift out of testosterone dominance into an estrogen dominant state. This can happen from blood sugar imbalances, exposure to xenoestrogens in foods, plastics and the environment and from stress which causes an imbalance in the adrenal hormones.
This test can be run along with the Adrenal Stress Profile.
