Over time, men experience a gradual loss of hormones produced in the gonads and adrenal glands. Testosterone and DHEA levels fall and estrogen levels tend to rise. Male menopause, or what doctors call 'andropause,' can create symptoms of weight gain, lower sex drive, depression, hair loss, sleeping troubles, fatigue, and increased prostate cancer risk. Many men feel this is part of getting older and do not know there is treatment to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The DUTCH Test® was created to provide insight into many of these concerns, working to deliver the most complete assessment of sex and adrenal hormones, along with their metabolites, in one easy to administer test. No blood to draw, spitting in tubes, or filling up jugs of urine. Our dried urine collection process is the ultimate test to get great baseline measurements of men with hormonal imbalances and to monitor Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
After utilizing the DUTCH Test®, you will be able to work with your medical provider to continue to track and evaluate hormone levels, ensuring they are at their optimum balance.
