Understanding Fertility with the DUTCH Test
Infertility affects one in eight couples, and uncovering the root cause for a couple can be complex. Join Dr. Jaclyn Smeaton in this webinar, where she will share how the DUTCH Test can be a useful tool to explore several of the functional drivers for infertility. These include metabolic dysfunction, thyroid and HPA axis function, oxidative stress, inflammation, and of course—hormonal health.
This webinar will discuss patient cases and explore some of Dr. Smeaton’s favorite treatment approaches as well. At the end of this presentation, you’ll feel well equipped to interpret the DUTCH Test for men and women with fertility in mind.
