Timing for taking samples was a little tricky, but OK, I did not like the fact that I now needed to go to a Doctor to have the results explained to me, as I thought I would get a report for the results, I do not have a Doctor here, never need one anyway, but was given a list of ones in my area to contact, but I never received a call after leaving a message, so I still do not know what I need as far as my hormones are concerned, I do not recumbent this expensive test to anyone who does not have a primary care doctor
My functional medicine provider prescribed this test years ago and provided a compound prescription per the results. Recently, I failed a hormone test per a web site, so I decided I should take another test. (Dry eye, thinning eyebrows, fat around the waist, and so much more are tied to hormones.) Getting 10% off was helpful in decided to take the expensive test. This is a complicated test for me. It is so picky about the timing of each test and liquids consumed. I am waiting for the results, which can take 3-4 weeks, but I was happy with the quick response from the Cohen group and reduced price.
The dutch test revealed many discrepancies in my hormone panel that need some attention. I highly recommend this test for anybody who needs information about their adrenals and overall hormone balance.
It was hard-conflicting instructions. I take several meds and hormone replacement. Now I don't know what to do with the info except it showed my estrogen level way too high, so for that I'm thankful I took the test.
