Male Panel Testing at Endurance on 8th Health Centre

Male Panel

Hormone imbalance in men is often overlooked.

Hormone imbalance affects men too - in fact, low testosterone is a common cause of irritability and grumpiness in men. If too much testosterone is converted to estradiol, decreased sex drive and increased breast size can result.

Saliva hormone testing is simple, accurate, and easily obtained. Four hormones make up the Male Panel: cortisol, DHEAs, estradiol, and testosterone.  Interactions between these hormones are fundamental to health - which is why imbalances can have a significant impact on well-being.

Other conditions associated with male hormone imbalance:

  • Apathy, depression
  • Bone loss
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Memory loss
  • Weight gain
  • Benign prostate hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)

Why Order a Male Panel?

Men who experience symptoms like those above that are not relieved by mainstream medical interventions, may benefit from having a saliva hormone test.   Knowing your hormone levels and how hormones work together may help your clinician find the right hormone solution for you.

Female Panel Testing at Endurance on 8th Health Centre

Female Panel

The right balance of hormones is important for women of all ages.


Women of any age can be affected by hormone issues.   Women who still have menstrual cycles may experience infertility, premenstrual syndrome, mood swings, anxiety, painful periods and other symptoms as a result of hormone imbalance.  Women in peri-menopause and menopause often experience debilitating sleep disturbances, night sweats, hot flashes, accelerated bone loss and many other symptoms related to hormone changes.  The Female Panel helps healthcare professionals sort out the specifics of the hormone imbalance.

Other conditions associated with hormone imbalance include:

  • weight gain
  • depression, irritability, difficulty coping
  • bone loss
  • breast cancer

Saliva hormone testing is simple, accurate, and easily obtained. Five hormones make up the Female Panel: cortisol, DHEAs, estradiol, progesterone and testosterone.  Interactions between these hormones are fundamental to health - which is why imbalances can have a significant impact on well-being. 

Why Get a Female Panel?

Women with symptoms not relieved by mainstream medical interventions may benefit from having a saliva hormone test.   Knowing your hormone levels and how hormones work together may help your clinician find the right hormone solution for you.

Adrenal Function Panel Testing at Endurance on 8th Health Centre

Adrenal Function Panel

Stress is unavoidable, which makes stress management important for maintaining health.

Everyone experiences stress at times, but how well we cope with stress depends on a number of factors, one of which is hormone balance.  The body's experience of stress is carefully mapped out by a series of hormone responses.

Fight or Flight

In an extremely stressful situation, the body releases bursts of the hormones cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline to prepare for a “fight or flight” response. High levels of cortisol free up stored energy to help the body physically resist or flee from physical danger.  

Modern-Day Stressors

Unlike the physical stressors of past centuries, our modern-day stresses tend to be less dramatic, but of longer duration. This means that cortisol levels may stay mildly elevated, resulting in symptoms like feeling tired but wired, difficulty sleeping, and anxiety. Excess cortisol also interferes with the action of other hormones (progesterone, testosterone and thyroid), creating more hormone imbalance and more symptoms.

Low Cortisol

With continued stress, the adrenal glands may become depleted from producing too much cortisol or may reduce cortisol production significantly in response to the detrimental effects of high cortisol.

Symptoms of low cortisol may include fatigue (particularly morning fatigue), increased susceptibility to infection, decreased recovery from exercise, allergies, low blood sugar, burned out feeling, depression and low sex drive. Other adrenal hormones can be affected, particularly aldosterone and DHEA. Low aldosterone may result in reduced sodium and potassium levels. Symptoms of low DHEA are not well defined, although low DHEA is often associated with chronic illness.

Why Get an Adrenal Function Panel?

Since cortisol is the major stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands, measurement of cortisol levels may be a useful means of assessing ability to cope with stress.
