Health and Hormonal Testing

Saliva tests
 Saliva Testing 
Saliva testing is an easy and noninvasive way of assessing your hormone balancing needs and is proving to be the most reliable for measuring hormone levels. Unlike serum tests, saliva testing represents only hormones actively delivered to receptors in the body. Clinically, it is far more relevant to test these bioavailable hormones and provide an accurate reflection of the body’s active hormone levels.
The Saliva Hormone Panel provides a basic evaluation of the sex hormones and a brief glimpse at adrenal function with the AM cortisol level. This panel is useful when retesting for those who have begun hormone therapy, or feel their hormones levels may be out of balance causing symptoms that are keeping you from feeling your best.

 Blood Testing 

Dr Naina Sachdev office offers a variety of laboratory services to help patients uncover their underlying health problems and guide them on the path to proper health. Comprehensive testing is critical for understanding one’s individual health and the steps required to improve biochemical imbalances.

Comprehensive health profile includes:

  • Lipid panel
  • Comprehensive Metabolic panel
  • Complete blood count w/auto diff

The blood test screens for cardiovascular risk, major organ function, anemia, cholesterol, glucose (blood sugar) infections, blood disease, and other indications of illness.

Additional panels are available upon request.

  • PSA
  • IGF
  • 25 OH Vitamin D
  • Anti Mullerian hormone 
  • Iron & TIBC
  • Hs-CRP
  • Ferritin
  • Estrones 
  • Estradiol 
  • DHT 
  • Free & Total Testosterone 
  • Progesterone 
  • Homocysteine 
  • Iodine 

Thyroid

Thyroid panel:

  • Free T3
  • Free T4
  • Reverse T3
  • TSH
  • TPO

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism Thyroid Hormone Imbalances

(Underactive Thyroid) 

  • Weight gain
  • Physical or mental fatigue or lethargy
  • Depression or irritability
  • Dry skin and or hair
  • Muscle pain
  • Painful periods
  • Intolerance to cold or cold hands and feet

Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism Thyroid Hormone Imbalances

(Overactive Thyroid)

  • Nervousness, anxiety and irritability
  • Sudden weight loss without a change in diet
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Tremors in your hands and fingers
  • Sweating
  • Changes in menstrual patterns
  • Increased sensitivity to heat
  • Changes in bowel patterns, especially more frequent bowel movements
  • An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Fatigue, muscle weakness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Skin thinning
  • Fine, brittle hair

 

Chronic stress can deplete thyroid function as the stress hormone cortisol inhibits thyroid function. Autoimmune disease of the thyroid can cause both hypo and hyperthyroidism, as the antibodies can either block or stimulate the thyroid receptors.

The test checks the levels of key hormones produced by your thyroid. The test is designed to establish current levels of these important hormones so any imbalances can be corrected.
