The DUTCH Test

DUTCH® TESTING

The DUTCH Complete™ (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) is the most advanced hormone test, offering an extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones and melatonin, along with their metabolites, to identify symptoms of hormonal imbalances. Easily collected in the comfort of your own home, samples are then sent to our lab to be processed.

HOW DUTCH® TESTING WORKS?

Patients collect just four or five dried urine samples over a 24-hour period. Dried samples are stable for several weeks making them convenient to ship worldwide.

 

DUTCH testing was designed to be optimally effective for most forms of hormone replacement therapy. Unique methods are used for improved monitoring of oral progesterone and vaginal hormones.

WHAT IS DUTCH® CYCLE MAPPING?

For some women, testing reproductive hormones (progesterone, estrogen, etc.) on a single day is sufficient. In other scenarios, the clinical picture cannot be properly captured without “mapping” out the hormonal pattern throughout their menstrual cycle.

The expected pattern of hormones shows relatively low estrogen levels early in the cycle, a surge around ovulation and modest levels in the latter third of the cycle (the luteal phase). Progesterone levels, on the other hand, stay relatively low until after ovulation. After ovulation, levels ideally increase (>10-fold) and then drop back down at the end of the cycle. A disruption in this cycle can lead to infertility or hormonal imbalance.

 

Recommended for:

• Women struggling with infertility
 Women with cycling hormones and no menses
 Partial hysterectomy (ovaries intact but no uterus)
 Ablations
 Women with irregular cycles
 PCOS
 If the luteal phase shifts from month-to-month
 Not sure when to test due to long or short cycles
 Women whose hormonal symptoms tend to fluctuate throughout the cycle
 PMS, mid-cycle spotting, migraines, etc.
