Diagnos-Techs Saliva Based Tests

About Diagnos-Techs Saliva Based Tests

Hormone saliva tests are available at Holistic Healing & Wellness via Diagnos-Techs. Established in 1987 by Dr. Elias Ilyia, Diagnos-Techs is the leading salivary-based testing and research laboratory in the United States. In 1989 Diagnos-Techs was the first laboratory to introduce salivary-based hormone testing into routine clinical practice , and in 1995 added salivary-based gastrointestinal and food intolerance testing. A pioneer and leader in saliva-based testing, Diagnos-Techs is committed to assisting health care professionals in restoring patients’ health and wellness by offering powerful tools for evaluating stress, hormone-related disease and health conditions.

Diagnos-Techs Test Panels Available through Holistic Healing & Wellness

Female Hormone Panel™ (FHP™)

The Female Hormone Panel™ (FHP™) is a non-invasive test consisting of 11 saliva specimens collected during specified time periods throughout the menstrual cycle. The ovaries are a major component of the female reproductive cycle and they release hormones in a cyclical manner which is referred to as the menstrual cycle. The Female Hormone Panel™ provides a dynamic mapping of the free fraction levels of Estradiol (E2) and Progesterone (P) throughout one cycle. In addition, the cycle average of Testosterone (T) and DHEA are measured. The Female Hormone Panel™ includes: Estradiol (x11), Progesterone (x11), cycle average Testosterone and DHEA/DHEA-S, 3 Progesterone production indices, 4 Estradiol production indices, a full cycle P/E ratio graph and an example of a restorative plan. The expanded Female Hormone Panel™ (eFHP™) includes an additional five (5) FSH and five (5) LH measurements.

Postmenopause Panel™ (PostM™) and Perimenopause Panel™ (PeriM™)

Menopause is a natural and usually gradual change in glandular function in women resulting in substantial shifts in hormone levels. The Postmenopause Panel™ provides measurements of six key hormones: Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol (E3), Progesterone (P), Testosterone (T) and DHEA, DHEA-S (pooled). The Perimenopause Panel™ contains the same components as the Postmenopause Panel™ but sampled twice, 13-15 days apart. The inclusion of FSH and LH in the expanded Postmenopause Panel™ (ePostM™), extends the interpretation to include pituitary involvement.

Male Hormone Panel™

The Male Hormone Panel™ (MHP™) allows the clinician to assess male hormone functionality affecting vigor, vitality and virility using a non-invasive saliva collection. The aging process is inevitable, but restoring lost male vitality is within reach. The Male Hormone Panel™ (MHP™) evaluates the androgen pathway by measuring the free fractions of 6 hormones: Androstenedione, Testosterone (T), Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), Estrone (E1), Progesterone (P), and DHEA/DHEA-S. The expanded Male Hormone Panel™ (eMHP™) contains all the tests in the MHP™ plus FSH and LH.

Adrenal Stress Index™ (ASI™)

The Adrenal Stress Index™ panel was introduced by Diagnos-Techs in 1989 to evaluate stress, a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. It is a simple non-invasive test utilizing four saliva samples collected at specified time periods during the day. Since the human adrenal gland does not secrete its steroid hormones at a constant level throughout the day, the Adrenal Stress Index™ (ASI™) provides the clinician with an comprehensive assessment of adrenal function throughout the daily cycle. The ASI panel consists of ten (10) saliva tests: Cortisol (x4),17-OH Progesterone, DHEA/DHEA-S, Insulin (x2), Gliadin Ab, and Secretory IgA.

Bone Health Panel™ (BHP)

The Bone Health Panel™ provides an assessment of bone health utilizing a combination of non-invasive saliva and urine tests. Diagnosis of osteoporosis has relied heavily on technology that shows HOW MUCH bone has been lost. The Bone Health Panel™ measures HOW FAST bone is being lost and the hormone levels associated with bone health. This panel consists of one (1) saliva specimen and one (1) urine specimen and eight (8) individual tests measuring the free fractions of six (6) key hormones: Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, FSH, Cortisol (x2), DHEA/DHEA-S, and urinary Pyrilinks-D (DpD).

Gastrointestinal Health Panel™

Diagnos-Techs’ GI Health Panels are a group of a non-invasive screens of the gastrointestinal tract and its function. The GI-1- Gastrointestinal Panel™ and GI-2-Gastrointestinal Panel™ measure 15 or 22 individual, yet related tests utilizing saliva and stool specimens. Additional panels include: The FIP-Food Intolerance Panel™ consisting of the 4 most common intolerance tests: Gluten, Soy, Milk and Egg proteins, The GP9-S-Ova & Parasites Panel™ consisting of Ova & Parasites, Giardia Ag, Cryptosporidium Ag, and Amoeba detection-saliva, and the GP10-S-Ova & Parasites Panel™ which includes all the tests in GP9-S plus H.pylori Ab-saliva.

Food Intolerance Panel™

Diagnos-Techs’ FIP-Food Intolerance Panel™ consisting of the 4 most common intolerance tests: Gluten, Soy, Milk and Egg proteins.
