DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones. Unlike standard blood testing, this test not only looks at levels of hormones, but also the way your body processes and metabolizes hormones and their fluctuations throughout the day.
5 Reasons Why You Should Do DUTCH Testing:
1. Easy to Do
2. Comprehensive Hormonal Testing
3. Hormonal Fluctuation Optimization
4. Cortisol Curve
5. Cancer Prevention
Every month a woman gets their menstrual cycle, it gives more information on how the body is doing overall. I liken it to a monthly report card!
I encourage women to not only track their day 1's of their cycles (first day of flow), but also to track other signs and symptoms.
