Blood, Salivary & DUTCH Hormone Testing

Salivary Hormone Testing

Salivary hormone testing measures free, biologically available hormones acting at a cellular level. Salivary hormone testing has been recognised by WHO (World Health Organisation) for over 30 years and is considered one of the most accurate methods of identifying certain hormone levels.

DUTCH Hormone Testing

DUTCH (Dried Urine Testing for Comprehensive Hormones) is one of the most advanced and comprehensive models for testing adrenal and male and female sex hormones.

Which hormones do we test?

We individualise each patient’s hormone panel and there are many different hormones and hormone metabolites we may test, however, some of the most commonly tested hormones include:

  • Cortisol: One of our most vital hormones, required for stress-coping; energy; general well-being and waking up refreshed, is also anti-inflammatory and controls our sleep-wake cycle. This hormone can become depleted through busy modern-day lives, chronic stress or illness.
  • DHEAs: Known as a “youth hormone”, DHEAs improves skin tone, memory and healthy weight, and can be utilised as a longer-term marker of adrenal gland health.
  • Melatonin: A hormone that plays a significant role in sleep, falling asleep, staying asleep, quality of sleep and waking up refreshed.
  • Testosterone and androgens: Testosterone is a hormone known for libido, muscle-building and fat eliminating actions. Other androgens we commonly test include DHT and androstenedione.
  • Progesterone: Helps to combat PMS, period pain issues, and balance oestrogen; assists fertility; promotes calmness and quality of sleep.
  • Oestrogens and oestrogen metabolites: There are three oestrogen hormones and multiple oestrogen metabolites. Oestrogens are primarily a growth hormone, too much of which may be associated with period pain, PMS, fibroids, cysts, breast tenderness and weight gain.
