Hormone testing is a clinically useful method for evaluating imbalances in hormone function. Along with the patients symptoms, it can be an effective tool for providing insight into hormone excesses or deficiencies. Hormones have been accurately measured in urine for over 30 years. Urinary testing is more expensive than saliva testing, but it is more comprehensive re the amount of information we are able to collect.
Urinary tests analyze metabolites and breakdown products as well as hormone levels. From this information we are able to see some nutritional components that can be adjusted to improve hormone function, as well as some risk factors for breast cancer, osteoporosis and other conditions.
