Elite Athlete Metrics Saliva and Bloodspot Profile - ZRT Test Kit

The Elite Athlete Metrics Profile allows identification of hormone imbalances or vitamin D deficiency that can affect performance, increase injury risk, or prevent an athlete from competing at their highest level.

Test Code: ZRTEAM

Also Known As:


Specimen Type: Blood and Saliva


10-12 hours fasting is required. Please read patient instructions very carefully and decide the ideal day for you to begin test. Do not eat, drink (except water) or brush your teeth prior to your first collection of the day and for the 2 hours prior to collecting throughout the day. Avoid anti-aging/anti-wrinkle facial creams for 3 days prior to testing as they may contain undisclosed hormones.

Test Results:

5-7 Days once the lab receives the specimen. May take longer based on weather, holiday or lab delays.


Hormones play an important role in athletic performance. It is best to start with a baseline before rigorous training begins and track hormones throughout a training regimen to look for big changes that can indicate problems and make sure that hormones are optimally balanced right before a competition.

The Elite Athlete Metrics Profile includes Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA-S, Cortisol x4, TSH, Free T3, Free T4, TPOab, and Vitamin D.

The sex hormones and cortisol are tested in saliva, allowing a diurnal assessment of cortisol production at 4 time points during the day. A full thyroid assessment in blood spot is included, and vitamin D.

The optional cardio panel gives athletes a broader glimpse into overall health by measuring triglycerides, cholesterol, and insulin. Optional LH helps assess exercise-induced amenorrhea in female athletes and excessive testosterone supplementation or painkiller use that can suppress LH, while hs-CRP gives an indication of inflammation in the body.
