  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Weight gain and difficulty losing weight
  • Low thyroid function

DUTCH is an acronym for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones. It is used for assessing levels of oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone as well as other hormones and neurotransmitters. This is combined with a saliva test for measuring the stress hormone cortisol.

The DUTCH PLUS could help you to identify whether hormone imbalances, including stress hormones could be contributing to your symptoms

It could also help you to identify how effectively you are managing stress and whether you may need extra support in this area.

Additionally, if you are using Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) the DUTCH test could help to show how efficiently you are processing these hormones

This includes:

  • a DUTCH Plus test (urine and saliva)
  • a 75 minute online consultation
