What does the DUTCH Complete Test cover?

The Dutch Complete (Adrenal and Sex Hormone) is a comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites. The DUTCH Complete test is broken down into 3 areas and the test covers the following elements:

  • DUTCH Sex Hormones
  • DUTCH Adrenal
  • DUTCH Organic Acid Tests

DUTCH Sex Hormones

The DUTCH sex Hormone panel looks at hormone measurements including oestrogen metabolites, androgen metabolites (testosterone, DHEA, DHT) and progesterone metabolites. As well as the raw data this information is provided as a graphical representation so that any breakdown pathways can be easily understood.

DUTCH Adrenal

The DUTCH adrenal Panel looks at daily free cortisol and cortisone, in addition to looking at metabolites of cortisol and DHEA. It covers creatine measurements for the 4 testing measurements taken throughout the day.

DUTCH Organic Acid Tests (OAT)

The DUTCH Organic Acid tests give a comprehensive overview of potential hormone and metabolite imbalances or deficiencies that both effect our overall health and energy levels. This test looks at nutritional organic acids such as Vitamin B6 and B12, biotin markers and glutathione. It includes the gut marker indican that can indicate potential dysbiosis is high.

In addition, it covers neurological inflammatory markers as some neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine. Melatonin and oxidative stress are covered.

The DUTCH complete can help identify the root causes of hormone imbalances in women. The test includes markers providing information about adrenal (stress) hormones as well as reproductive hormones (oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone).

Balanced levels of sex hormones throughout life are crucial for optimal health. Sex hormones influence reproductive capability and sexual characteristics. They contribute to the determination of our body shape, sexual character, motivation, behaviour and fertility. They fluctuate throughout life and imbalances in these pathways can result in a variety of symptoms.

The sex hormones oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone belong to the steroid hormone group, which also includes DHEA, testosterone and cortisol. They work together to influence cellular physiology in many ways through connected pathways.

This test can be used to gather baseline measurements for the administration and monitoring of hormone replacement therapy.

The DUTCH Complete (adrenal and sex hormone) for Women test measures the key female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, along with the stress hormones cortisol and DHEA-S. It also measures testosterone plus the breakdown products of the above. It covers 35 different hormones.

  • Oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone – the important sex hormones
  • Daily free cortisol including 4 different samples taken over 24 hours providing information about stress patterns throughout the day
  • Oxidative stress marker (8OHdG) providing information about free radicals and damage to cells
  • Melatonin  – the major modulator of circadian rhythms in the body associated with the sleep / wake cycle
  • Organic acids including markers for vitamin B12 (methylmalonate), vitamin B6 (xanthurenate), glutathione (pyroglutamate), dopamine (homovanillate), adrenaline (vanilmandelate), and serotonin (5-hydroxy indole acetate). They provide information about metabolism/workings in the body’s pathways.

DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones – it’s a urine hormone test.

The DUTCH test is simple and easy to do. Urine samples are taken using filter paper, making the test suitable for use at home.

Before taking the DUTCH test female patients must have gone through puberty and have a menstrual cycle.
