Precision Analytical DUTCH Complete (Urine)
If you experience symptoms of hormonal imbalances such as PMS, heavy and/or painful periods, hot flashes, low libido, vaginal dryness, stress, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, or irritability, the DUTCH test can help us to assess the underlying reasons behind these symptoms.
DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites, as well as the diurnal pattern of free cortisol.
Not only does the DUTCH test assess your levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, but it also looks at the metabolites to determine how your body is processing them. Estrogen metabolites can help us understand estrogen-related cancer risk. Androgen metabolites are useful for women experiencing hair loss, hirsutism, and PCOS. The DUTCH test looks at free vs metabolized cortisol, to see the balance between cortisol production and what is available for use. These markers give us insight so we know how to best support you with diet and lifestyle modifications and supplementation.
This simple at-home test uses 4 or 5 dried urine samples over a 24-hour period. These samples are stable for several weeks, making them convenient to ship worldwide.
DUTCH testing was also 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.
