Your Doctor Can Run These Tests If You Suspect Hormonal Acne

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
  • hs-CRP
  • Hemoglobin A1c, Fasting Glucose & Fasting Insulin
  • IGF-1
  • Zinc, Serum
