The DUTCH Plus™ Welcome to the next generation of Adrenal and Sex Hormones Testing. What’s so great about this test, is the how much information you will receive regarding not just your adrenal glands, but all of your sex hormones. Because the DUTCH PLUS combines both Saliva samples with Urine Samples, you will get the best of both worlds. The saliva component will look at the free fraction of cortisol, or the amount that actually is used by your cells. You will also looks at your circadian rhythm and your Cortisol Awakening Response. Both will explain how stress is breaking down your HPA axis, and most importantly, what can be done to fix it. The Urine component will look at your sex hormones and their metabolites. This is important because your stress response impacts your sex hormone, ultimately contributing to your exhaustion and burnout.
The kit includes:
• Easy-to-follow Directions and Requisition Form
• (4) Urine Collection Strips and (6) Salivette™ Saliva Collection Tubes
