Sample Report


The advanced dried urine test for hormones is an ideal test for complex hormone patients. This comprehensive assessment (D.U.T.C.H) is unique for what it can reveal from such a simple collection.

This test will measure and identify: Estrogens (x13), Progestagens (x7), Androgens (x6), Glucocorticoids (x4), free Cortisol (x4), free Cortisone (x4), and Melatonin (x4). The advanced hormone profile is collected off four separate dried urine samples at key time points throughout the same day: 1st morning, 2nd morning, early evening, and bedtime. Urine is collected on filter paper strips either by dipping it in urine collected in a cup, or by urinating directly on the strip.

This test is ideal for a comprehensive overview of a patient’s hormonal status or trying to find the underlying cause of a real complex hormone related issue. Reporting of this profile is practitioner and patient friendly in the sense that it provides detailed explanation and comments based on the test results as well as a symptomatology chart indicated by the patient and how these symptoms reflect the test results.
