Reproductive hormones rarely get accessed in routine blood screening. A full picture of what is going on hormonally requires a careful look at the several hormones, while being mindful of the timing of the menstrual cycle, if pertinent.
Blood tests are a useful tool, but they may not truly reflect actual hormone levels and their response in your system since hormones act locally in the body tissues and not in the blood. As a result, blood testing often leads to inappropriate hormone prescribing. Salivary testing, which is used in combination with bloodwork, can help facilitate optimal hormone balancing.
Bronte Wellness Boutique offers Oakville area patients an unmatched range of naturopathic diagnostic tests, including salivary testing, that go beyond routine lab testing to assist in diagnosing conditions and monitoring the effectiveness of hormonal therapies.
