Genova Diagnostics:One Day Hormone Check


A Salivary Profile for Assessing Key Hormones

The One Day Hormone Check™ is a convenient salivary hormone test that evaluates unbound, bioavailable hormone levels. Specimens collected over 24 hours are examined for levels of estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin. Hormone testing can help clinicians customise and monitor therapies.

Which patients might benefit from salivary hormone testing?

The One Day Hormone Check provides information about the impact that shifting hormone levels can have in men (andropause or male menopause) and women (perimenopause and menopause). Menstruating females can also run this profile, although the Rhythm Plus is Genova's comprehensive salivary profile that tracks the menstrual cycle over a full month.

Patients with hormone imbalance may present with:[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13]

  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Breast tenderness
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Loss of libido
  • Insomnia
  • Changes in hair and skin
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Cognitive decline
  • Decreased muscle mass/strength
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cardiovascular disease

Genova does not offer hormone testing for pediatric populations (under 18 years old).

About the One Day Hormone Check

The One Day Hormone Check results are organised into three main areas:

  • Sex Hormones
    • Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol (E3)
    • Progesterone
    • Testosterone
    • P/E2 Ratio
  • Comprehensive Melatonin Profile
    • Melatonin x 3 specimens to assess diurnal rhythm
  • Adrenal Stress Profile
    • Cortisol x 4 specimens to assess diurnal rhythm
    • DHEA
    • DHEA:Cortisol Ratio

To enhance clinical utility, a therapeutic cohort results cover page is provided for the clinician to quickly see where patient results fall in comparison to a cohort of peri/menopausal women treated with bioidentical hormone therapy.
