If you suffer from hormonal imbalances, PCOS, PMS, fertility issues, menopause, mood swings, breast health changes, stress, poor sleep, anxiety or foggy thinking, this comprehensive testing profile covers menstrual hormones, cortisol stress hormones and melatonin sleep hormone. The test is collected easily at home with 4 X dried urine samples collected through the day. Reporting also considers symptoms that you note via a questionnaire when completing the test.
The advanced dried urine test for hormones or DUTCH testing is a comprehensive assessment of menstrual, sleep and stress hormones combined, which is a prefered way to address hormonal issues.
This test will measure and identify: Estrogens (x13), Progestagens (x7), Androgens (x6), Glucocorticoids (x4), free Cortisol (x4), free Cortisone (x4), and Melatonin (x4). The advanced hormone profile is collected off four separate dried urine samples at key time points throughout the same day: 1st morning, 2nd morning, early evening, and bedtime. Urine is collected on filter paper strips either by dipping it in urine collected in a cup, or by urinating directly on the strip at home and then posted back to the lab for testing.
This test is ideal for a comprehensive overview of your hormonal status or trying to find the underlying cause of any complex hormone related issues. Reporting of this profile then provides detailed explanation and comments based on the test results as well as a symptomatology chart indicated by the patient and how these symptoms reflect the test results.
