The DUTCH Foundational Lecture Series brought to you by Precision Analytical, explores a wide range of topics related to hormone health and functional testing. To learn more about how the DUTCH test can benefit your clinical practice & help you to better understand patient hormone patterns, register today for this 8 part series.




Functional Endocrinology Laboratory Testing

In this 1 hour 20 minute foundational lecture, Mark Newman explores functional endocrinology laboratory testing and how to use the DUTCH test to help better understand patient endocrinological issues.

This advanced hormone testing was developed to surpass industry standards for available testing options. DUTCH testing offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal steroid hormones, along with their all-important metabolites.

Length: 80 min
Presenter: Mark Newman


HPA Axis Stress: Controversies, Conundrums, and Opportunities

In this foundational lecture, Dr. Thomas Guilliams explores the function of the HPA Axis and understanding how stress can hijack the adrenals, compromise the efficiency of metabolic processes, and leave us vulnerable to chronic disease.

The HPA axis is one of the most important regulators of normal function, most especially resource management and circadian synchronicity.

Length: 80 min
Presenter: Dr. Thomas Guilliams


The HPA Axis

In this foundational lecture, Dr. Carrie Jones will discuss the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal, or HPA-axis, which plays an important role in stress response.

DUTCH Medical Director, Dr. Carrie Jones will explain the components of the HPA-axis (hypothalamus, pituitary gland, adrenal glands), the hormones released by each of these structures during the stress response, and identify the role of cortisol and the importance of DHEA.

Menopausal Hormone Therapy: Best Practice Update

In this webinar presented by DUTCH clinical consultant, Doreen Saltiel, MD, JD, FACC, review menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) best practices. MHT’s risks, benefits, and myths will be discussed along with a review of the current guidelines, their application, as well as the evidence on laboratory testing and clinical outcomes. A case study will also be used to translate the data into clinical practice.

Length: 86 min
Presenter: Dr. Doreen Saltiel, MD, JD, FACC


The HPO Axis

In this DUTCH foundational lecture, Dr. Bethany Hays is our guest presenter and will cover the Female Hormone Journey, from pregnancy through to the formative teenage years, ending at menopause and beyond.

Female hormones are still very much at the heart of health issues for all women at different stages of life. Touching upon many aspects of female health and well-being and recognising the role of hormones is crucial for practitioners to support their female patients.

Length: 86 min
Presenter: Dr. Bethany Hays


The HPG Axis & Men’s Health

In this foundational lecture, Dr. Mark Holthouse will take a detailed look at adult male hormones and discuss laboratory assessments, lifestyle treatments, and medical interventions for low testosterone in both adult and young men.

This webinar will provide healthcare practitioners insight into the assessment and management of male symptoms commonly linked with testosterone imbalances. Case studies and discussions will include treatment options for various issues associated with hormone imbalances, including physiology, hormone restoration, pharmacologic approaches, nutritional influences, and lifestyle factors affected outcomes.

Length: 90 min
Presenter: Dr. Mark Holthouse


Androgen Testing – The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

In this foundational lecture, Mark Newman will take a deep dive into interpreting androgen metabolites through the DUTCH test, openly discuss the pros and cons of all available androgen testing, and why certain ethnic groups may have unique challenges when using urine for monitoring testosterone and DHT levels.

In this webinar, Mark will explain the differences between measuring DHEA/DHEA-S in serum and what we find in urine. We’ll also explore why we consider DUTCH a complimentary test for testosterone replacement therapy and why we still consider serum the gold standard, and primary test, for TRT monitoring. However, DUTCH androgens have unique insight not available in serum. Urine is rich with metabolites, giving insight into testosterone and DHEA production. Unlike DUTCH estrogen metabolites, testosterone metabolites have significant caveats that must be considered.

Length: 71 min
Presenter: Mark Newman


Menopausal Hormone Therapy: Clinical Benefits and Outcome Studies

In this non-CME webinar, Dr. Doreen Saltiel reviews the limitations of hormone-related guidelines, while demonstrating how the clinical evidence guides prescribing micronized progesterone, estradiol, and testosterone therapy. She also dives deep into which delivery methods and doses improve clinical outcomes.
Since the 2002 Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) publication, menopausal hormone therapy (MHT), especially estrogen (E)/estradiol (E2) replacement therapy (ERT), has been hotly debated. The WHI’s preliminary data release changed clinician practice patterns. Since then, clinicians have struggled with weighing the benefits with the risks. Since women spend approximately 1/3 of their lives hormone insufficient/deficient, it is important to understand MHT’s benefits and risks and how they may impact your patients and practice.
