The best test for hormonal acne is the DUTCH Complete which will assess DHEA, androgens, estrogen metabolism, progesterone levels, and cortisol.
If that’s not a viable option for you, speak with your doctor and ask for the following:
- Progesterone, Estrogen, DHEA-S (7 days after ovulation), Free Testosterone, SHBG, FSH and LH, Prolactin
- Hemoglobin A1c, Fasting Glucose & Fasting Insulin
- Zinc, Serum
