Why Test Hormones?
Each person’s hormone levels are unique, like fingerprints, and require personalized treatment. Testing major sex hormones like estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, and testosterone along with adrenal hormones like DHEA and cortisol, can provide valuable information about deficiencies, excesses, and daily patterns. A personalized approach to hormone replacement therapy is much more effective than a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
Why Test Using Saliva?
Most hormones in the blood are bound to carrier proteins and not bioavailable to target tissues. Saliva measures unbound bioavailable hormones, for this reason saliva testing is thought to better relate to specific symptoms of excess or deficiency. Salivary testing provides a good option for baseline assessment of hormones and to monitor hormone replacement therapies.

What Hormones Does The MosaicDX Hormones Profile Test?
The major sex hormones to evaluate include estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, estrone, and estriol. Additionally, the main adrenal hormones are DHEA and cortisol. Testing for these hormones can provide valuable information about deficiencies, excesses, and daily patterns, allowing for a personalized treatment approach that is much more effective than the old “shotgun” approach.
Below is an overview of analytes included in the comprehensive and comprehensive plus panels, along with a brief description of each analyte:
EQ (E3/(E1 + E2)) Ratio
The Hormone test report is a useful resource for practitioners who want to gain valuable insights into bioavailable hormones.

Related Symptoms and Conditions
Identifying hormonal imbalances is essential in customizing hormone replacement therapies and other nutritional interventions aimed at relieving the signs and symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances.
Take our symptom checker to help identify if you are experiencing hormonal imbalances:
Numbers in the chart represent the severity of each symptom:
0 – None | 1 – Mild | 2 – Moderate | 3 – Severe
Add up the total number for the patient’s symptoms. The higher the total, the more likely the patient has a corresponding hormonal condition. This should help guide you to the most appropriate test.
Symptoms and diseases associated with hormonal imbalances may include:
Men or Women Experiencing:
High blood sugar
Elevated lipids (cholesterol and/or triglycerides)
Loss of stamina
Decrease in mental sharpness
Reduced muscle size
Irregular menstrual cycles
Prostate enlargement or cancer
