8-OHdG (oxidative stress)
What distinguishes this test from standard testing?
When testing for adrenal issues, saliva and blood tests do not measure cortisol and sex hormone metabolites. Metabolized cortisol accounts for about 80% of total cortisol output, meaning the free cortisol measured in the other tests doesn’t give us the full picture. Examining metabolized sex hormones shows us exactly how we’re clearing estrogen from our bodies and which types of estrogen we’re making, which can in turn tell us how at-risk we are for certain estrogen-dependent cancers or if we might have the MTHFR gene mutation. Additionally, saliva tests cannot decipher between low, normal, and high levels of estrogen.
The DUTCH test gives you the full picture of your reproductive and adrenal hormones AND includes values for melatonin and oxidative stress.
All this is from the comfort and privacy of your own home— no doctor visits necessary.
