    Sarah & Dr Brooke Show #171 Hormone Testing & Replacement With Dr Carrie Jones

    Sarah & Dr Brooke Show #171 Hormone Testing & Replacement With Dr Carrie Jones

    We had the amazing Dr Carrie Jones, ND, MPH join us on this episode to talk about hormone testing via various methods: serum (blood testing), saliva and dried urine. We talk about the value in each type of testing and what unique things they can show us. Dr. Jones is the medical director of Precision Analytical, makers of the DUTCH test.
    We also dove into the controversial and very big topic of hormone replacement for women. While this is a subject that clearly needs its own episode - truly needs a series of episodes - we discussed some considerations for each woman to have in mind as they determine with their provider if HRT is right for them.
