The DUTCH Urine Steroid Hormone Profile is the most cutting-edge way to truly see what's going on when it comes to your hormones.

It measures hormones and hormone metabolites (called conjugates), which are a measurement of hormone production and hormone breakdown.

Measuring both hormones and their metabolites can give you or your health care practitioner a much better overview of hormone production.

For example, a DUTCH urine steroid hormone profile on someone with low salivary cortisol could show normal cortisol production, but high levels of metabolites. In other words, this would indicate that you are producing enough cortisol, but it's just getting broken down into its metabolites very quickly. There are also some metabolites that are important markers for cancer risk that can only be measured in urine.

With serum (blood) and saliva hormone spot-testing, it's possible to track variations in hormone release throughout the day - and this is a great way to measure how your hormones change during a 24-hour period (your circadian rhythm). In contrast, the standard 24-hour urine collection many physicians use reflects your total hormone output in a 24-hour period.

But by using the DUTCH urine steroid test, you get the best of all worlds: blood, saliva and urinary results with just a urine collection.

The DUTCH test measures the following:

  • Free cortisol
  • Free cortisone
  • Creatinine
  • Tetrahyrdocortisone
  • a-tetrahydrocortisol
  • b-tetrahydrocortisol
  • DHEAs
  • Progesterone metabolites (a-pregnanediol, b-pregnanediol)
  • Androgen metabolites (DHEAS, etiocholanolone, androsterone, testosterone, 5a-DHT, 5a-androstanediol, 5b-androstanediol, epi-testosterone)
  • Estrogen metabolites (estrone, estradiol, estriol, 2-OH-estrone, 4-OH-estrone, 16-OH-estrone, 2-Methoxy-estrone, 2-OH-estradiol)
  • 6-OH-melatonin-sulfate

Testing is easy.

You are sent a collection kit straight to your front door, and the kit includes five easy-to-use filter paper devices on which you urinate. You then use the enclosed prepaid label to send it back to the lab.
