Dutch Complete Test
Why test your hormones?
Because hormone imbalances affect every body system and can cause very uncomfortable symptoms and can even contribute to disease. Common symptoms of hormonal imbalances include:
High blood pressure
Postural hypotension (getting dizzy or feeling faint when you stand up)
Fat gain and weight gain
Cravings for salt or sugar
Skin rashes and breakouts
Decreased stress tolerance
Intolerances to cold or hot
Poor muscle tone, difficulty to gain muscle
When assessing your hormone balance there is a lot to consider! The total amount of hormone made is important, but as important is the amount your cells can use, how well you clear out the hormones, what time of day you are producing them and even their relationships to each other. Getting a blood test simply can’t tell you all these things. Besides, a blood test is painful. And expensive. And terribly inconvenient.
That’s why The Soulful Sprout uses The DUTCH urine hormone test. This simple urine test tells you how much hormone you make, how much you use, and how much you make at a different times of the day. It’s affordable, it’s accurate and it’s convenient – simply pee on some strips at home and mail it in. Easy-peasy.
The DUTCH test measures these key hormones and their metabolites:
Progesterone metabolites (a-pregnanediol, b-pregnanediol)
Androgen metabolites (DHEAS, etiocholanolone, androsterone, testosterone, 5a-DHT, 5a-androstanediol, 5b-androstanediol, epi-testosterone)
Estrogen metabolites (estrone, estradiol, estriol, 2-OH-estrone, 4-OH-estrone, 16-OH-estrone, 2-Methoxy-estrone, 2-OH-estradiol)
