Hormone Testing at Holistic Women and Families
As a functional medicine practitioner at Holistic Women and Families, located in Port Orange, we love Precision Analytical’s DUTCH test for hormone testing. DUTCH stands for dried urine test for comprehensive hormones. This test is replacing most of the saliva testing that we order for our patients. The information that can be gained from the metabolites in the urine is much more comprehensive than saliva.
The test measures, cortisol, melatonin, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and DHEA. But it goes a step further and breaks down the testosterone and estrogens so that we can determine the pathways of detoxification, the type of estrogen and their ratios, and the pathways of testosterone.
This information not only can be used to make proactive preventative health decisions, but it can also be invaluable in determining a health plan post breast and prostate cancer. Hormone imbalances can cause a cascade of health problems from monthly period symptoms, mood disorders, sluggish liver detoxification, cancer, and insomnia.
