Dutch Hormone Testing

Are you considering a DUTCH hormone test?

If you're grappling with possible hormonal issues, such as abnormal menstruation (such as heavy or painful periods), PMS, headaches, decreased sex drive, mood swings, fatigue, anxiety, depression, breast tenderness, endometriosis, fibroids, acne, or hormonal weight gain then, yes this can help.

Moreover, if you're undergoing Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), it can be crucial to assess how your body is metabolising these hormones. Understanding your body's response to HRT and evaluating the risk of oestrogen accumulation can be essential considerations.

A DUTCH hormone test offers valuable insights into your hormonal profile, guiding personalized interventions and optimizing your hormone therapy regimen.

What does the DUTCH Test measure?

DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones. It measures hormone metabolites from dried urine samples collected from a small amount of urine on filter paper.

The hormones that can be measured include:

Cortisol, Cortisone, Oestradiol, Estrone, Estriol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, and Melatonin. This test also measures cortisol, cortisone rhythms, levels, and oestrogen metabolism pathways

Are you considering a DUTCH hormone test?

The DUTCH test is not the best way to determine the actual levels of these hormones.

 

A blood serum test is the best option. If you would like this as well, please email me, and we can arrange that. Several DUTCH tests are available. The DUTCH complete is the most beneficial and value for money. If you want to order a different product, please email me, and we can arrange this.
