What Is the DUTCH Complete Hormone Test?

The DUTCH Complete hormone test is a full, one-day hormone test that includes: 

  • Estrogen (neither men nor women want too much!)
  • Estrogen metabolites (how you break down and detoxify estrogen)
  • Testosterone (both men and women need to have enough)
  • Progesterone (important for fertility and in perimenopause)
  • DHEA (a sex hormone precursor)
  • Cortisol (needed for energy, sometimes excess in stress)
  • Melatonin (an antioxidant that helps you sleep and more)
  • Some vitamin and neurotransmitter markers
  • And more!

Benefits of the DUTCH Hormone Test

Testing your hormone levels can help with understanding various aspects of your life that may have changed such as your mood, sex drive, weight, increase in fatigue, etc.

Hormones can be the cause for changes in your body and making simple adjustments in foods, supplements, and habits can improve or even heal those symptoms.

Signs You May Need a Hormone Test

If you've noticed changes in:

  • Mood (anxious, frustrated or weepy)
  • Sex drive
  • Weight
  • Muscle mass
  • Energy
  • Sleep quality 

then the DUTCH Complete may be a great way better understand why these changes are happening and how to correct them.

What Does the DUTCH Hormone Test Package Include?

  • A one-day DUTCH Complete test that includes estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, cortisol, melatonin, some vitamins, neurotransmitters and more!
  • A 30-minute test analysis with our team (Most DUTCH tests are with our coach Micki; you can read her bio here.)
  • Detailed supplement recommendations based on your test results.

What Does the DUTCH Test For?

  • The health and output of your adrenal glands
  • Your levels of testosterone, estrogen and progesterone 
  • Levels of some nutrients such as B6, B12 and glutathione
  • Estrogen metabolite ratios (relate to cancer risk)
  • Methylation activity (marker of detoxification)
  • Insight into neurotransmitters, nutritional status, toxicity, and oxidative stress

To help you get a feel for how comprehensive this test is, below is a screenshot of a sample report. This is just the overview: the reports are pages long and provide very in-depth data!

Who Is This For?

This test can be run by men or women, at least a few years out of puberty, so about ages 16 and up. There is no upper age limit to run this test. 

This test can be great if you are struggling with symptoms like:

  • Hot flashes
  • Fertility concerns
  • Difficult periods
  • Perimenopause
  • Menopause
  • Estrogen dominance in men

**Do you have irregular or absent cycles (not related to menopause) or are struggling to get pregnant? The DUTCH Cycle Mapping Plus can give you insight on the whole monthly hormonal shifts of estrogen and progesterone plus Cortisol Awakening Response. The cost is $695 and this service will occasionally go on sale when the DUTCH Complete does. This test requires a special order so please contact us here to inquire.

The Research on DUTCH

  1. Actual data about your hormone levels is a crucial part of determining appropriate and effective approaches to achieving balance.
  2. While there are several ways to evaluate hormones, not all methods are created equal and different methods should be chosen based upon what the clinician and client wish to assess.
  3. The wealth of accurate information provided by a DUTCH panel allows us to make better suggestions with regards to your care which we believe leads to better clinical outcomes.

Location Restrictions

If you are in New York, you will be required to submit the New York Release Form when you ship back your sample.

If you want to ship outside of the US, please fill out this form here and do NOT purchase through this page. In most cases, shipping internationally will simply incur a $30 shipping fee in addition to the price listed above, but please fill out the form linked above to verify.

What Is the Timeframe?

Women: Please take this test about day 20 of your cycle if cycling, or anytime if not (but avoid completing the test if you are acutely ill). If you have just given birth, we recommend waiting till you're cycling again and then do it on the third cycle.

Men: You can take this test at any time of the month, but please avoid completing the test if you are acutely ill.

Results delivery: Once the lab receives the test, it processes in about 3 weeks. We will then contact you to make an appointment.

Women: What If I Don't Have a Cycle?

If you have a cycle, it's ideal to test during the middle of the luteal phase (around day 20). However, many of us don't have such predictable cycles, and the DUTCH can actually help point to the reasons why the cycle isn't ideal. Since it's measuring the hormone metabolites for sex and adrenal hormones, as well as many other things, it's great for helping to guide you to what the issue might be. If you cannot predict your cycle, take the test at any time (except when acutely ill).

What If I'm Currently Taking Hormones?

If you use hormone replacement, you have two options:

  1. Discontinue hormones 1 week prior to the test (preferred, but not required)

  2. Continue hormone replacement and see how your body is responding to your current treatment

Do You Take Insurance? 

We are health coaches and cannot bill insurance or provide you with specific documents to submit to your insurance. (We do provide you with a transaction receipt, but these receipts are not recognized by many insurance companies.) However, if you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) credit card, you may be able to purchase this service on that card if coaching and testing are allowed. If you have trouble getting your HSA card to work on our site, we can send a PayPal bill instead. 

Can We Review Other Labs at the Same Time as This One?

We do not review any past labs unless you have purchased the same lab from Hormone Detox Shop in the past (i.e., it's a retest). If you would like us to review other labs, we are happy to do that. That is included in a Past Labs Review, and you have the choice to review 1-3 or 4-6 labs. Please make that purchase at the link above, and you will receive an email letting you know how to upload those documents and schedule that appointment. 

If you are not interested in that option but want to see how these new results compare to results from a past lab with another practitioner, that will be easy to do if it's the same lab testing company. You will easily be able to compare a past DUTCH with a new DUTCH, for example, to see what's changed. Your Hormone Detox coach will interpret your current results and give you a plan that fits your current situation. You are welcome to verbally share with your coach, "my cortisol has come way down since my last test," but ultimately it doesn't affect your current plan.
