The DUTCH® test is a state of the art test from the US lab Precision Analytical Inc. that provides a clear and comprehensive look at our hormones, stress levels, oxidative stress (disease) markers and mood issues.
Who should be tested:
Hormones dictate your mood, weight, energy and sleep and when they are dysregulated, women will often experience:
stubborn weight gain
bloating and indigestion or food intolerances
periods with pain, heavy flow, irregularity
mood issues that range from irritability to turning into a ‘monster’ that is impossible to be around with
depression and anxiety that can last for up to 2 weeks of the month
frequent waking at night or insomnia
sugar and/or salt food cravings that are impossible to control
fatigue that creates dependency on caffeine and alcohol
memory and attention problems
frequent stress and overwhelm
peri-menopause or menopause symptoms such as hot flushes, weight gain, irritability, etc
diagnosed or suspect PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome)
diagnosed or suspect endometriosis
history of estrogen cancers (breast, prostate) in family
What the test measures:
What I love about the DUTCH Complete Hormone Test:
simple to administer – urine collection, in the comfort of your home
super accurate (much more so than standard hormone blood tests)
shows your stress hormones- super important for understanding hormonal issues such as mood
shows ALL of your hormones: estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and their metabolites
shows what types of estrogen and which pathways estrogen is taking: the ‘good’ non- proliferative pathways or the ‘bad’ pro-mutagenic pathways
used to formulate highly personalised and results oriented diet and lifestyle plans for my clients
