Why are multiple samples and a fluctuation analysis so important?

Single hormone assessment is not an accurate demonstration of your hormonal patterns, which fluctuate from day to day. Saliva hormones, fluctuate from day to day. Realizing that saliva assays exhibit hormone concentrations at the tissue level at a given point in time1, we can recognize that making a decision about hormone levels based on one saliva sample is not a valid decision. Previous research, and clinical experience, has revealed that reliability can be increased by using more that one measurement2.How much they fluctuate and what to do about this fluctuation in regard to your Menopause Type® can only be determined by the Menopause Type® Test & Wellness Report.

The best way to evaluate hormone levels during and after menopause is through the collection and testing of at least three samples, so that fluctuations can be evaluated. Multiple-sample assessment is required because unstable hormonal fluctuations have been observed years after menopause 3. These hormonal fluctuations play a role in many of the symptoms and problems associated with menopause including migraine headaches, obesity, mood changes, and bleeding irregularities in both perimenopause and postmenopause women 4,5,6,7.

Actions of Hormones: In women, estradiol, progesterone and testosterone are all steroid hormones produced primarily by the ovaries and adrenal glands. Each of these hormones has its own unique affect on the reproductive system, the nervous system, the cardiovascular system and the skeletal system. Blood sugar levels, libido, mood, motivation, skin and other functions and tissues are also significantly influenced by each of these hormones.

Like any steroid hormones, excessive amounts of estradiol, progesterone or testosterone can contribute to a number of increased health risks. Likewise, a deficiency of any of these hormones can have a negative affect on your quality of life or risk for disease. Therefore it is crucial that proper levels also be maintained in all women.

 

Why You Need This Test: Your improved quality of life and decreased risk of disease depends upon an accurate and honest report of your hormone activity. Only multiple-sample, fluctuation analyzed saliva tests will give you the answers you are looking for.

 

What Choices You Can Make After Taking This Test: Interventions you may choose include nutritional supplements specific for your Menopause Type®, and the degree of hormonal fluctuation. Dietary changes, including which foods may be beneficial to improve your quality of life and decrease your risks of disease. The member of the Menopause Type® Network you are working with will be your best resource for managing your menopause.

 

How This Test Can be Used for Long Term Risk Management: Follow-up testing 60-90 days after making consistent changes will show how much the hormones have become more stable & improved and allow you to adjust the intake of suggested foods and supplements. Testing also gives valuable guidance regarding hormone replacement therapies for women, including natural hormone therapies and progesterone creams. The test is also being advised for men who have a family history or other reasons to be concerned about prostate cancer. Alterations in current medical or nutritional therapies should be discussed with your health care professional.
