DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones)
Precision Analytical USA offers a range of hormone tests depending on your needs.
Hormones change as we age, but they are also susceptible to imbalances through nutrient deficiencies, stress, and environmental toxicity. Symptoms come in many forms and can be anything from mood swings to headaches to loss of confidence because hormones control so much of how our body functions.
Imbalances can have an immense impact on your daily life. Tests that analyse one or two hormones can be of little help because our hormones are much more complicated in their interactions than what a test like that would reveal.
The DUTCH tests are invaluable when you really want to know what is happening hormonally in your body.
- Do you suffer from PMT?
- Do you think you may be perimenopausal or menopausal but aren’t sure?
- Are you having trouble conceiving?
- Do you feel out of sorts and have trouble coping?
The Dutch hormonal profiles give a unique insight into this important interactive hormonal interplay that affects your body at every moment of every day.
This tests the adrenal hormones, melatonin, creatine, progesterone, oestrogen, metabolites and ratios, androgens, neurotransmitter metabolite, and nutritional organic acids. 41 markers in total.
DUTCH Plus (Complete and CAR)
This test includes the hormones from The DUTCH complete and CAR, which is the Cortisol awakening response.
This gives extra information on adrenal function, particularly the body’s immediate response to stress.
DUTCH Complete with Cycle Mapping
This test measures the hormones over an entire cycle, which tracks the different hormones’ fluctuations at different times of the month.
The markers from the DUTCH Complete Test are included giving a comprehensive evaluation of your hormone status.
The cycle mapping is beneficial for issues around irregular bleeding, infertility, and general issues around hormonal imbalance.
35 Hormones are tested along with their metabolites.
