The Diagnostic Tests Your Doctor Probably Isn’t Running But Should Be
Not everyone needs to do every type of advanced functional medicine testing. It all depends on your symptoms and any existing health issues you may have.
These particular issues tell us that more in-depth testing will be a good idea:
Not sure if you have exposure to toxins? Some signs are the following:
1. Four Point Cortisol Test
This test looks at the health of your adrenal glands, which produce the stress hormone cortisol. It’s possible that cortisol could be the reason you are experiencing weight gain, high blood pressure, blood sugar imbalances, or hormone imbalances.
2. The GI Effects or CDSA 2.0 3 day stool test
This medical test reveals imbalances between the good and bad bacteria in your gut, identifies any overgrowth of yeast, and finds parasites. It also tells us if you have inflammation in your digestive tract and if the digestive juices in your pancreas are low, which could indicate that you’re not properly absorbing nutrients. For some people with digestive and autoimmune problems, this test is a game changer.
3. Genomind Genetics profile or 23&Me
There are a lot of things your DNA can reveal about your genetic potential and we can make specific recommendations for diet, exercise, and supplements that will help you metabolize hormones in a more efficient manner.
1. Broad thyroid panel (Free T4, Total T3, Free T3, Reverse T3, anti TPO Ab and anti Thyroglobulin Ab)
2. Essential nutrients: iron/ferritin, vitamin D, vitamin B12, magnesium
3. Complete metabolic panel and complete blood count
4. Metabolic markers: hemoglobin A1c, fasting glucose and insulin, lipid panel
5. Inflammatory markers: hsCRP, homocysteine
Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure. In the European Union, 20% of all grains harvested have been found to be contaminated with mycotoxins. Unfortunately, mycotoxins are resistant to heat and many processing procedures.
Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fiber glass insulation, ceiling tiles, and gypsum support are all good surfaces for fungi to colonize. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases.
Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.

This specific test is the only clinical test that utilizes blood, hair, and urine to measure excretion abilities and exposure of inorganic and methyl mercury. Unlike common “Challenge Testing”, this test separates methyl mercury (mostly from seafood or amalgam-based mercury) from inorganic mercury (the most toxic form) and measures each directly.
One thing to note — There is no need for Challenge Testing – Challenge testing can result in redistribution of metals in the organs. It can also have difficulties identifying long term toxicity and your unique mercury excretion capabilities. This specific test provides unprecedented information on exposure sources, body burden and ability to excrete each form of mercury.
Nutrient + Toxic Metals Analysis – This Panel screens for a broad range of elements to show elevated exposure to toxic metals or imbalances of nutrient elements in whole blood.
16 Elements – Nutrient Elements: Calcium, Copper, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Zinc. Potentially Toxic Metals: Antimony, Arsenic, Cadmium, Cobalt, Lead, Mercury, Silver, Strontium

WHAT IS THE DUTCH PLUS?
The DUTCH Plus is a comprehensive dried urine and saliva test that maximizes the available information from sex and adrenal hormone production and metabolism. With easy, at-home sample collection over the course of one day, providers can gain insights into the overall diurnal pattern of free cortisol and cortisone, along with the total distribution of cortisol metabolites. This test offers further insight by including organic acid testing, which evaluates potential nutritional deficiencies, oxidative stress, gut dysbiosis, melatonin levels, and neuroinflammation.
With the DUTCH Plus, providers also get a closer look into adrenal function with details about a patient’s cortisol awakening response (CAR) by showing cortisol’s natural rise and fall within the first hour of waking.
How is DUTCH different from other hormone tests?
Easier Collection: Patients collect just four or five dried urine samples over a 24-hour period. Dried samples are stable for several weeks, making them convenient to ship worldwide.
Comprehensive Report: DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Our comprehensive report gives providers actionable results so they can develop more effective treatment plans.
Backed by Research: We pride ourselves in relentlessly pursuing the most accurate and precise techniques available for testing.
Effective HRT Monitoring: Our testing methodology allows us to effectively monitor for most forms of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Expert Education: Registered DUTCH providers can access a variety of hormone education tools and resources to help them interpret the DUTCH report and understand how to use our family of tests to profoundly change the lives of their patients.
Clinical Support: Our team of clinical educators offers group and one-on-one sessions to walk providers through their patients’ reports. With this expert support, providers can feel confident interpreting their patients’ results and creating effective treatment plans.
You are Unique and Your Food, Fitness, Supplements and Lifestyle Habits should be too! These Labs are $600 and should be taken every year (or every 3-6 months if you have a diagnosis). For those who want extra support and guidance from Dr. LeTa, you can schedule 1-on-1’s with her for support.
