This easy at-home dried urine and saliva test analyses sex hormones, cortisol, cortisol awakening response (CAR) and organic acid markers to identify any hormonal issues and assess the stress response.
Get valuable insight into how individuals respond to stress, and identify any underlying dysfunctions using this comprehensive test. The combined dried urine and saliva samples measure sex hormones and their metabolites, as well as measuring cortisol and the cortisol awakening response.
By measuring cortisol awakening response in conjunction with cortisol itself, this test gives a more accurate picture of how an individual responds to stressors.
This test requires four dried urine and five saliva samples to be collected over one day.
This test is appropriate for men and women, providing an accurate report of hormonal health. It is an excellent option for those who suspect hormonal imbalances, want to evaluate their HPA axis function, or who simply want to monitor their hormonal health.
Please note, the price of this test includes a DHL home collection and shipping to the USA where it is analysed by Precision Analytical.
Collecting your samples
If postmenopausal or male, collect samples on any day.
If premenopausal, collect samples between days 19 and 22 days of your cycle. For longer cycles, add the number of days you usually go beyond 28 days (e.g. collect between days 21 and 23 of a 30-day cycle). Subtract in a similar manner if your cycles are shorter (e.g. collect between days 17 and 20 of a 26-day cycle).
