    DUTCH Complete

    Identify the root cause of hormone imbalances

    DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) Complete can help identify the root causes of hormone imbalances in men and women. It can provide insights into conditions such as the menopause, PCOS, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, premenstrual syndrome, mood swings, sleep issues, mood disorders and prostate issues in men.


    Claire O'Brien is a registered partner of DUTCH test and one few providers in Ireland.


    What does the Dutch Complete Hormone test measure?
    This is a unique test., it measures your hormone metabolites from dried urine samples. The hormones include:

    • Cortisol
    • Cortisone
    • Oestradiol
    • Oestrone
    • Oestriol
    • Progesterone
    • Testosterone
    • DHEA and DHEA-S
    • Melatonin

    This test also measures your cortisol and cortisone rhythms and levels, and your estrogen metabolism pathways.

    Why measure all these hormones?
    There are lots of reasons. If you have sleep or stress issues, testing your adrenal hormones and their rhythms gives specific information about how to handle these problems.

    With fertility problems, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, PMS, irregular periods, painful periods, anxiety and moodiness, and endometriosis, this test is highly beneficial. It gives a complete picture of how adrenal and reproductive hormone imbalances contribute to these problems.

    If you use hormone replacement therapy, you want to monitor your levels. This test works uniquely well for oral progesterone, vaginal hormones, patches, pellets and injections. Note that this is only for hormone replacement therapy, not hormonal birth control pills.

    With sleep problems, it’s important to check melatonin. Melatonin can be low and related to your sleep problems, or it can be normal.

    You may have low DHEA levels. This is a “feel-good” hormone produced by your adrenal glands. When it’s low, it can cause fatigue, a decrease in muscle mass or bone density, depression, aching joints, loss of libido, and lowered immunity.

    You may have “oestrogen dominance.” This is when the scales are tipped so that progesterone is low and estrogen is high. Oestrogen dominance can be a factor in endometriosis, PMS, painful periods, fibrous breasts, fibroids, tender breasts, moodiness, and more. It can make perimenopause symptoms significantly worse.
    This test shows how you metabolise oestrogen through your liver. If you don’t metabolize estrogen well, your risks of oestrogen-related cancers such as breast, cervical and uterine cancer can increase.

    The DUTCH Test Complete costs €400 inclusive of complete analysis and report, DUTCH test complete with cycle mapping €500 (suitable for those with irregular periods, PCOS, IUD). Return post to the lab costs approx €8 through An Post or €40 through DHL.


    The DUTCH Test Plus costs €450 inclusive of analysis and reports and includes an CAR (Cortisol Awakening Response) test useful in assessing Stress, Sleep, Chronic Fatigue, SAD and mood disorders. Please note there is a €30 postage fee for the test sent from the lab. Return post to the lab costs approx €8 through An Post or €40 through DHL.
