Clack Co. Concierge Pharmacy Consulting is proud to work with some of the best national laboratories to offer comprehensive, minimally invasive testing options to provide a complete medical profile for each of our patients.
Have you ever wondered about how your hormones correlate to physical symptoms? Saliva testing, even when quantities are minute, are capable of providing a profile that helps to determine over- or under-production of certain hormones. Laboratory testing allows us to assess hormonal profiles of steroid hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S, and cortisol.
Sometimes, medications and supplements are eliminated via bodily secretions, including saliva. Unfortunately, this can alter test results from saliva samples. Additionally, saliva testing cannot detect certain hormone levels, including thyroid, blood lipids, or insulin.
To avoid misleading results and to offer a more complete profile, we also offers blood spot testing. With no more than a minimal pinprick (similar to the iron test during blood donations), a comprehensive patient profile can be assessed.
Traditional urine profiles require patients to collect each specimen s/he eliminates for 24 hours. In contrast, dried urine testing uses the same process as the dried blood spot testing. Utilizing the same filter-card collection method, patients can obtain accurate results for hormone and toxins levels. Dried urine testing accurately measures iodine, bromine, arsenic, selenium, cadmium, mercury, and creatinine levels.
