DNA DOG /DUTCH Complete/DNA Oestrogen/GI MAP plus Zonulin
This advanced hormone testing was developed to improve on the available hormone testing options. DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily (diurnal) pattern of free cortisol is included along with melatonin. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.
Women: Millions of women suffer from hormonal imbalances. Identifying the root cause of chronic health issues is certainly correctable, but only if properly identified. The dried urine collection process is great for baseline measurements of women with hormonal imbalances and for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) monitoring.
Men: Over time, men experience a gradual loss of their hormones that are produced in the gonads and adrenal glands. Testosterone and DHEA levels fall and estrogen levels tend to rise. Many men feel like this is part of getting older and do not think there is treatment to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. The DUTCH test was created to provide insight, in one easy to administer test.

Test type: Dysbiosis / Leaky Gut / Gastrointestinal function / Celiac disease / Bacterial overgrowth / Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP)- Comprehensive panel of microbial targets, immune and digestive markers
The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) was designed to assess a patient’s microbiome from a single stool sample, with particular attention to microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance and may contribute to perturbations in the gastrointestinal (GI) flora or illness.
The panel is a comprehensive collection of microbial targets as well as immune and digestive markers, and relies exclusively on quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more by targeting the specific DNA of the organisms tested.
Zonulin has been identified as a key biomarker for intestinal permeability, which has been associated with celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and other GI and systemic conditions.
- Autoimmune molecular mimicry (if caused by pathogens)
- Foodborne illness
- Gastroenteritis (if it has viral causes)
- Gut dysbiosis
- Leaky gut
- Celiac disease / gluten sensitivity
- Suspected bacterial, parasitic or viral pathogenesis (incl. detection of antibiotic resistant bacteria)
DNA Oestrogen includes 11 genes involved in oestrogen biosynthesis, oestrogen metabolism, and phase I and phase II detoxification, providing information to guide personalised diet, lifestyle, hormone, and nutra-ceutical recommendations.
Approximately 80% of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history. Oestrogen affects the function of a number of target tissues and research has shown that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer. DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is metabolised. Guiding the personalisation of diet, hormone and nutritional supplement recommendations, based on the insight gained from the DNA Oestrogen test, to improve oestrogen metabolism is of benefit to men and women who suffer from numerous oestrogen-dominant conditions and who have higher lifetime exposure to oestrogens, oestrogen metabolites and other carcinogens.
- Men or women with a strong family history of breast, ovarian, colon or prostate cancer
- Women who suffer from oestrogen-dominant conditions such as endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome and uterine fibroid tumours
- Women considering oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy or bio-identical hormone supplementation
- Women who are considering in vitro fertilisation or who have been diagnosed with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer
The DNA Oestrogen Test Report provides:
- The level of impact of any genetic variants identified
- An explanation of their impact on oestrogen metabolism
- Appropriate nutritional and lifestyle recommendations to support healthy oestrogen metabolism
