DUTCH Plus™ Hormone Test from Precision Analytical ~ Taking hormone testing to a whole new level.
The DUTCH Plus™ is an advanced comprehensive hormone test that includes melatonin and neurotransmitters. It measures an extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones or "stress hormones" and their metabolites, as well as markers for melatonin, oxidative stress, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, glutathione, dopamine, norepinephrine/epinephrine or noradrenalin/ adrenalin, and serotonin. The DUTCH Plus™ is a 21st century test that provides a complete accurate assessment of hormonal health.
This advanced test also looks at the overall diurnal (24hr) pattern of free cortisol, the Cortisol Awakening Response and the total and distribution of cortisol metabolites. If your diurnal cortisol rhythm is disturbed (high or low at the "wrong" times of day), you may feel fatigued, suffer from brain fog, and/or find it harder to deal with stress and it may be affecting your ability to sleep well. Cortisol also impacts melatonin, as well as sex hormones and multiple other bodily functions. Furthermore, measuring the cortisol metabolites indicates how much cortisol your adrenals are actually producing - which may be completely contrary to the free cortisol levels.
It's almost impossible to "guess" your cortisol levels at various intervals thoughout the day without measuring. It is common to assume your cortisol is extremely low, when actually fatigue can be a symptom of high cortisol. Sometimes someone who is very stressed or anxious may assume their adrenalin is high, but testing then indicates normal adrenalin levels with high cortisol levels.
The Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) is included to bring another important piece of the HPA axis into focus. The CAR may prove particularly relevant if you find it hard to get going or generally feel worse in the mornings, and/or suffer from symptoms of autoimmunity. A healthy CAR effectively sets you up for the day, both in terms of morning energy and balanced mood and blood sugar regulation throughout the day.
By understanding your own individual CAR, cortisol metabolites and free cortisol rhythm at the present time, you can address the imbalances through supplement and lifestyle protocols that are appropriate for you to make a difference to the way you feel now.
From the comfort of your own home, you simply collect a combination of dried urine and saliva samples throughout the course of a day, according to kit instructions.
The DUTCH Plus™ is the obvious choice for those who want to evaluate the complete picture.
