I love how you explain things to us. You break it down and really help us understand. Thank you for continuing to educate us woman so well! You’re appreciated! Love your posts!
Thank you so much for this article! A couple of months ago I was so desperate about all my health issues and doctors not listening that I was heavily considering this test (in Hungary, you can just get all sorts of tests done in private labs without someone having to order it). Since I wasn't quite sure what I'd do with the results, I decided not to get it. What a waste of money it would've been!
Dear Dr Jen, Thanks for your enlightening articles. Could you please comment on or write an article on the DUTCH test which seems to show how we metabolise estrogen and conclude on our risk for developing breast/endometrial cancer. I have been told that my body favours the “bad” 4 HO pathway and that I should not be on HRT. It’s frightening me that there is such controversy about this, many reputable doctors endorse this test as the “gold standard hormone test” whilst others like my present gynaecologist and yourself dismiss it as pointless. How are we to know whom to trust? Thank you
