Are your hormones at their ideal balance? People experiencing fatigue or low energy, low libido, weight gain, or brain fog may have a hormonal imbalance. Additionally, females may experience PMS, vaginal dryness, fertility concerns, hot flashes, or night sweats, while males may experience erectile dysfunction.
Hormones in the body are operated by the HPA axis (hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal axis), which is located in the brain and adrenal glands. This pathway is influenced by cortisol released from the adrenals during a stress response. Fortunately, there is testing to investigate this pathway further.
The DUTCH Test (dried urine test for comprehensive hormones) by Precision Analytical is a comprehensive functional test for evaluating sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. This includes the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and adrenal hormones DHEA and cortisol. DUTCH testing currently has a promotional discount of about 30% until March 31st, 2023.
