Enhanced Salivary Hormones Profiles


As a leading laboratory in hormone testing, Genova Diagnostics is excited to announce the addition of a Therapeutic Cohort Results Cover Page to our specialty line of salivary sex hormone profiles.

  • Compare patient results to a select cohort of supplemented peri/menopausal women (Therapeutic Ranges) in addition to relevant healthy sub-cohorts (Reference Ranges)
  • Therapeutic Ranges describe the distribution of salivary test results in a Therapeutic Cohort of patients being treated with bioidentical hormone therapy
  • The Therapeutic Cohort Results Cover Page provides both colorimetric reporting (indicating where a patient falls in the cohort standard distribution) AND quintile reporting (to easily follow individual patient trends over time in response to therapies)

Menopause Plus™ is Genova's most comprehensive salivary hormone profile, and is designed to provide insight into the impact that shifting hormone levels may play in men (andropause or male menopause) and women (peri/menopause).

  • The Menopause Plus hormone test is comprehensive: eight saliva samples, collected every other day over 6 days, provides individual and average levels for estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), progesterone, progesterone/estradiol ratio (P/E2), as well as a one-time measurement of testosterone
  • The final four collections over the last 24-hr period provide diurnal measurement of cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin
  • The Menopause Plus report now provides both Reference Ranges and Therapeutic Ranges, enabling the physician to choose the optimal reference cohort for their individual patient

Salivary Hormone Testing

  • Salivary hormone testing is an easy, non-invasive diagnostic option to measure unbound and biologically active levels of key hormones
  • Salivary hormone profiles provide insight into the impact that shifting hormone levels may play in patients presenting with symptoms such as:

    • Hot flashes
    • Mood instability
    • Anxiety/Depression
    • Fatigue
    • Glycemic control
    • Low Libido
    • Cognition
    • Sleep disturbances
    • Vaginal atrophy
    • Altered lipid metabolism

  • Salivary hormone testing may be utilized to establish a baseline ahead of clinical intervention with hormone therapy (HT), as well as subsequent monitoring for therapy response
  • The wide selection of Genova's Salivary Hormone Profiles provides collection-pattern options that offer the advantage of measuring hormones on different days and at different times of the day, depending on clinical objectives, providing insight into irregular patterns of hormone secretion over time
  • In-home, ease of collection makes salivary hormone sampling an ideal diagnostic for patient convenience, especially when multiple samples are required to be collected over a period of time
  • The new Therapeutic Ranges Cover Page now adds enhanced utility to the clinical use of salivary hormone testing

The addition of the Therapeutic Ranges Cover Page will impact the following profiles:
