For what it is, I do like the Dutch Complete Hormone Test. My only complaint is that I found it difficult to stay within the fluid restrictions, and ended up feeling desperately thirsty. It was useful to have alternative timing available so I could complete the test all in one day. I would recommend this test as needed. I just finished the collections yesterday, and after 24 hours of drying, will put the strips in the mail. I'm eagerly awaiting the results! (as described to his wife)
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.
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
