DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones)
Precision Analytical USA offer 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 also 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 immense impact on your daily lives. Tests which analyse one or two hormones can be of little help when 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 think you may be peri menopausal or menopausal but aren’t sure?
