Low Testosterone can happen to the healthiest of men of all ages. We see low T in teens, young adults, middle aged men, seniors and in women too. They call our clinic and say they are looking for a hormone imbalance test online that tests ALL hormones especially testosterone. A blood test does not always find low T but the symptoms are still present. Low T can show up in the saliva and not the blood because saliva tells you more about the bio available hormone levels.
In men suffering from low Testosterone they may have symptoms of low sex drive, lack of desire to work, weight gain around the belly, brain fog, lack of desire for life, erectile dysfunction, low joy, weakness and even trouble sleeping. Traditional medicine may not find the low testosterone in the blood as blood only tests the transport levels of hormones, not the usable amounts of hormones. Saliva is another way to test for hormone levels. We have tested the blood and the saliva many times together and sometimes they are the same, but many times the saliva is totally different from the blood test results.
Women with low Testosterone may be suffering from symptoms of fatigue, lack of desire to exercise, low sex drive, pain, and a low mood. Women need a smaller amount of testosterone then men but they still need it.
Be careful though with Testosterone support, whether it be natural or medical. Too much of a good thing can cause adverse symptoms. Some symptoms of high testosterone for men and women would be hair loss, acne, anxiety, trouble sleeping and in women PCOS and infertility. The key is balance.
We offer a hormone imbalance test online for testosterone and all of your hormone levels. Hormones need to be balanced, not too high or too low for optimal health and wellness.
All test results come with a natural (herbal) protocol for supporting hormone balance.
