More specific than blood tests, the DUTCH test will a combination of adrenal and sex hormones over a 24-hour time-frame. It is comprehensive, reliable and actionable. The results are more accurate than a traditional 24-hour urine collection as samples are taken at specific times of the day. The test is also more convenient as DUTCH provides test strips to collect the urine which are allowed to dry before sending to the laboratory.

The DUTCH test shows cortisone and DHEA levels and shows a cortisol awakening response, as well as a free cortisol pattern over the course of the day and cortisol metabolites.

The DUTCH test can identify, Oestrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, Melatonin and Serotonin. In addition DUTCH looks at active Oestrogen metabolites and their metabolism in the body, rather than simply showing overall oestrogen levels. This is very important when looking at the way we metabolise and remove oestrogen from the body.
