Whatis the Dutch Test?
The Dutch Complete and Dutch Cycle Mapping tests are a comprehensive hormone panel that we use in our clinic to assess various hormone imbalance in our clients
The DUTCH test is a urine steroid hormone profile that measures hormones and hormone metabolites in a dried urine sample, and is performed from the comfort of your home. It is the most cutting-edge way to truly see what’s going on when it comes to your hormones, because it doesn’t just measure hormones, but also something called “metabolites”, which are a measurement of hormone production and hormone breakdown.
Measuring both hormones and their metabolites can give you or your health care practitioner a much better overall picture of hormone production. For example, a DUTCH urine steroid hormone profile on someone with low salivary cortisol could show normal cortisol production, but high levels of metabolites. In other words, this would
indicate that you are producing enough cortisol, but it’s just getting broken down into its metabolites very quickly.
