DUTCH - What is the DUTCH test?


The DUTCH Test is a comprehensive hormone test that measures hormone metabolites in urine. It's often used to assess hormone levels and their metabolites, providing insights into hormone imbalances and potential health issues. The test measures levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), and cortisol, along with their metabolites. The term "DUTCH" stands for "Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones." It's a popular choice among practitioners for evaluating hormonal health due to its comprehensive nature and ability to provide a detailed analysis of hormone metabolism.

Why use DUTCH?

The Dutch Test offers several advantages that make it a valuable tool for assessing

hormonal health:

1. Comprehensive Analysis: The Dutch Test provides a comprehensive assessment of hormone levels and their metabolites, offering a detailed picture of hormonal balance and function.

2. Multiple Hormones: It measures a wide range of hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol, allowing healthcare practitioners to assess various aspects of hormonal health.

3. Metabolite Measurement: In addition to measuring hormone levels, the Dutch Test also analyzes hormone metabolites. This is important because hormone metabolites can provide insights into hormone metabolism and potential imbalances that may not be evident from hormone levels alone.

4. Precision and Accuracy: The test uses dried urine samples, which are stable and easy to collect, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

5. Personalized Insights: By assessing individual hormone levels and metabolites, the Dutch Test can provide personalized insights into hormone imbalances and help tailor treatment plans to address specific issues.

6. Monitoring Progress: It can be used to monitor changes in hormone levels over time, allowing healthcare practitioners to track progress and adjust treatment as needed.

“When a patient is experiencing symptoms like painful PMS, chronic fatigue, low libido, or just feeling “off”, it only makes matters worse trying to get answers from traditional medical tests. It can be even more frustrating to suffer from symptoms and receive no diagnosis because their bloodwork comes back “normal”. This is one of the many reasons why many practitioners and their patients are switching to DUTCH testing-they get more answers.” (Dutch Practitioner’s Resource, First Edition November 2022)
