Introduction to DUTCH
How long does it take to get my results?
The DUTCH Complete and Plus kits take approximately 2 weeks (7–10 business days) to process the samples and upload the report to your portal. Cycle Mapping kits may take up to 1 additional week.
Which hormones does DUTCH not test for?
DUTCH testing covers a wide range of hormones but does not include Pregnenolone, Growth Hormone, and Thyroid.
If you are looking for a test that includes these three hormones, a full hormone blood panel may be a better option for you.
What if I miss a collection?
Simply collect the sample as instructed the following day. All samples do not need to be collected in one 24-hour period.
Do I have to take the samples in the order listed?
No, they can be collected in a different order. If you wish you may start with sample #3, followed by #4, #1 & #2. If you begin with #3, collect the extra sample if you wake and urinate in the night.
How long can I keep the dried samples before sending them in?
While hormone levels are very stable in dried samples, they should be sent back as soon as possible. If you have to wait to
send them in, place them in the freezer (in a plastic bag) after drying.
Do I need to stop taking my hormones for this test?
This test is built to test patients “on” their hormones. Our suggestion is to follow the Hormone Schedule (listed previously), and any specific instructions given by your provider.
What if my sleep schedule is abnormal (night workers, etc.)?
Collect the bedtime sample (#2) before your longest stretch of sleep, the waking sample (#3) after this sleeping period, and sample #4 two hours later. The dinnertime sample (#1) should be collected 4-7 hours before bed.
What if I am unable to urinate at the specific time?
Simply drink some fluids and go as soon as you are able.
Is DUTCH testing appropriate for children?
The minimum age for testing is 12 years old. To test children under 12, we strongly recommend the DUTCH Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) measured with saliva.
Is there research behind DUTCH testing?
