DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones. The DUTCH Test is a comprehensive functional hormone test. It combines saliva and urine testing for a more complete picture of hormone levels as well as metabolites. In addition, it also includes an Organic Acid Test which tests additional metabolic processes that can provide insight into nutritional deficiencies, oxidative stress, gut dysbiosis, melatonin, neuroinflammation, and more.
