Dr. Drobin Provides Root-Cause Hormone Help
Dr. Jane Drobin, ND, DC, owner of Naturopathic and Chiropractic Family Health, LLC, in Elizabethtown, assists women in getting to the root cause of hormone issues, including irregular, heavy or painful menstrual cycles; fertility issues; perimenopausal issues; weight gain; polycystic ovary syndrome; acne; fatigue and more. She assesses what lifestyle choices could be affecting hormones as well as the reasons why birth control medication was prescribed in order to determine if it is the best option.
Drobin commonly runs the DUTCH panel to get a full assessment of hormone levels, including cortisol, estrogen (E1, E2, E3), progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and many other markers. “The DUTCH test is most beneficial because it is a urine test that measures hormones on a 24-hour cycle; it can monitor all fluctuations throughout the day,” she explains. “In addition, it measures unbound hormones only, as opposed to serum tests that measure bound and unbound, which may skew the results. Each patient is treated according to individual needs; therefore, other tests may be suggested, such as vitamin D or a full thyroid panel.”
