DUTCH Hormone Panel

The DUTCH test is a simple dried urine test that measures hormones as well as their metabolites.  The reason we would want you to perform this test is to measure:

  • How much hormones you are producing
  • How well you are clearing them, or clearing them too quickly
  • If they are being directed down alternate pathways

 

Key advantages include:

  • Maps hormones through a full menstrual cycle
  • Provides a comprehensive view of key hormone fluctuations throughout an entire cycle
  • More accurate than saliva for progesterone and especially for estradiol

There are various panels measuring different hormones and we would have suggested which ones would be best for you.
