The DUTCH Test* (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) helps practitioners answer complex clinical questions by providing the most comprehensive hormone monitoring results with simple patient collection. Our rigorous pursuit for the truth in hormone testing has produced multiple peer-reviewed studies proving the effectiveness of dried urine testing as an alternative to serum (blood) or saliva for monitoring a variety of hormone therapy applications.
- Dutch complete – This advanced hormone testing was developed to improve on available hormone testing options. DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin (6-OHMS), 8OHdG, and six organic acids. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.
- Dutch Adrenal – The DUTCH adrenal provides free cortisol patterns that parallel saliva with the addition to metabolite measurements for an improved marker for total cortisol production.
- Dutch CortisoI Awakening Response – Offers an evaluation of the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) by measuring salivary cortisol upon waking and then again 30 and 60 minutes later (additional measurements are made around dinner and bedtime). Research has shown that this post-awakening increase in cortisol (the CAR) is the best way to assess an individual’s stress response and HPA-axis function.
