Dried Urine Testing for Comprehensive Hormones (DUTCH)
Hormonal imbalances among women are very common, because of this a woman’s quality of life (and those around her) can be significantly affected
Menopause, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, premenstrual symptoms (PMS), mood swings, or depression can be signs of unbalanced hormones.
The DUTCH test was created to provide insight into many of these hormonal imbalances and provide a comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones, along with their metabolites.
With this information, we can make the most informed decisions about treatment options.
The results include:
• Analysis of 35 different hormones: estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol along with their metabolites
• Daily free cortisol patterns to provide insight into ‘adrenal fatigue’ or symptoms of chronic stress
• Graphical representation of results and embedded video tutorials to assist in the hormone assessment to share with your medical provider
• New! Oxidative Stress Marker – 8-Hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG)
