The DUTCH Test and Fertility
Aug 24, 2018
- Why testing hormone levels using urine is preferred to blood. How the DUTCH test helps someone struggling with infertility.
- How cortisol (stress hormone) impacts sex hormones. We discuss stressors such as food sensitivities, structural stress (eg.. pinched nerve or pain in body), environmental stress and gut infections and how these impact reproduction.
- If you are struggling with Premature Ovarian Failure, Low Ovarian Reserve and low AMH and high FSH...typically the estrogens on the DUTCH are very low and in the menopausal range. We discuss how testing helps to figure out a treatment plan. Plus is supplementing with DHEA a good idea?
- We discuss gut health (infections, leaky gut) and hormones. This connection is often missed by your conventional doctor. Plus we dig into thyroid dysfunction (hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's) and the link to low levels of metabolized cortisol.
