Sample Report


The aging male experiences a decrease in testosterone at a rate of 10% per decade from the age of 30. This reduction of testosterone and other androgens experienced as a consequence of the ageing process has been named andropause or androgen deficiency of the ageing male (ADAM).

As the body ages it is evident that particular hormones decline or fluctuate causing a variety of health conditions. This unique profile will provide valuable information on an individual’s hormonal status. The Male hormone profile will provide insights into a wide range of disorders, from reduced libido and muscle mass to cardiovascular disease and other hormone related imbalanced symptoms.

Salivary hormone testing is particularly ideal for the prevention and treatment of hormone related symptoms and conditions, prescribing and monitoring Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and natural hormone replacement therapy. Salivary Hormone testing is unique in that it helps identify the hormonal imbalances which may be causing chronic health problems. From just one simple non-invasive collection, results obtained from the test make it possible for practitioners to individualise treatment in order to establish optimal hormone balance.
