Are they safe and reliable?
As a consumer, you want to see the data that supports this being a good brand.    Consumers are very sophisticated and want as much information as possible to make an informed decision.  Amid sweeping changes in U.S. health care, the trend toward cost-effective self-care products used in the home emphasizes prevention and early intervention. Even the best screening tests are occasionally wrong. No tests, whether performed at the lab or in the home, are perfect.

Why should you test your hormones?

Blood measures the total level, including the bound and inactive fractions. It is the unbound or "free" amount of hormone that the cells of the body are exposed to, making saliva testing a good way to measure hormones.

OsteoCheck is a urine screen that measures deoxypyridinium, a compound linked to bone breakdown.  Increased levels of deoxypyridinium indicate the loss of both organic and inorganic phases of bone.



A simple analogy illustrates the difference: A bone denisity scan reveals how much bone you have in your "bone bank".  OsteoCheck will reveal your "rate of withdrawal"
