FLUIDS iQ®’s suite of saliva based hormone tests can be used by the health care professional as a tool towards developing an overall assessment of a patient’s general health and well being. Test results, combined with any symptoms a patient may be experiencing, allow both patient and health care professional to understand how imbalances of hormonal levels could be affecting quality of life and perhaps suggesting disease processes and disorders that might be at play. Hormone testing is therefore a good adjunct towards creating personalized treatment plans, leading to better health and quality of life.
