Saliva Testing for Menopause: Do you need it?
Dr. Leibman is often presented with a print-out of Hormone Salivary Testing during his first meeting with women going through menopause. While it looks impressive and convincing on paper, Dr. Leibman has done research on the tests and says it is not accurate and is not recommended by academic institutions everywhere.
Here’s why. Not only are the testing kits are all different, which doesn’t standardize results, but the kits are not FDA approved. Dr. Leibman prefers to treat his clients with treatments and solutions that are evidence-based. So far, there is no scientific basis for the results shown on the Hormone Salivary tests.
