    Saliva Kits for testosterone testing

    Looked a little pricey, but has anyone used those saliva tests kits you can get at CVS to test their testosterone? I am wondering if they are a viable option for those who live in states that donít allow private blood work.

    Interesting.
    Is it in-store only or online?
    The only one I see online is a mail-in kit that only tests Free-T


    I just ordered this at-home finger-prick test I plan on taking next week.

    If I can find the test you're referring to, I'll take them both at the same time and compare the results.

    Yeah, you are right. I should have been more specific. It only measures free testosterone, but they also had one for thyroid testing. Good find on the at home finger prick one.

    The online tests many of us use (PrivateMDlabs, etc) often cut their Testosterone report off at 1500 even if you are above that. The good part is they warn you about that and provide options if you are expecting your number to be > 1500 and want to verify that. I didn't even know anything like what dk and FarmerTed say was available, but that might be a good detail to find out about with these newer tests if you expect your number to be > 1500 and want to verify that.

    For Private MD Labs, I use them all the time. It is possible to get Test levels over 1500, but you have to make sure that you order the right test from them if you want that. They usually have notes on their testosterone test descriptions like this now::
    Note: If total testosterone results are expected to be >1500 it is best that the Testosterone LC/MS-MS version of this test be ordered. The highest value on the Free (Direct)Testosterone is >50.
    So basically just make sure the test you order is an LC/MS-MS version, it will say that in the description.

    Lol, I know, Cohiba. I was using PMD and similar business-models to bring up the point that the new (new to me anyway) saliva and finger-prick tests might present the same problem ... that they may only report up to 1500 even if your true level is way higher. I do not know this to be a fact, just suggesting a prospective buyer check to make sure he's getting what he thinks he's getting.
