Why would you do the Dutch test or the HuMap test?
The Dutch test and the HuMap test primarily measure your sex and stress hormones. These hormones play a crucial role not only in fertility but also in the overall health and well-being of your entire body. Sex and stress hormones have a widespread impact throughout your body!
Issues and symptoms related to menstrual cycles and fertility, such as infertility, recurrent miscarriages, PMS, PMDD, heavy periods, menstrual cramps, PCOS, endometriosis, perimenopause and menopause symptoms, and ovulation disorders, are the most common reasons to seek a comprehensive hormone test like the Dutch test or the HuMap test. However, these tests can also be helpful in many other situations. Read on for more information or book a free 30-minute consultation to determine if the test is suitable for your situation and which test is best for you.
Hormonal issues can be addressed through a comprehensive approach of balancing hormones based on symptom and background information. Additionally, closely monitoring your menstrual cycle provides valuable insights into your hormonal health.
However, comprehensive hormone tests such as the Dutch test or the HuMap test provide the most detailed picture of your situation, revealing the true location of the problem and enabling targeted treatment to address the root cause. Targeted treatment with me primarily involves lifestyle adjustments, nutrition, and supplements. These completely natural approaches have a tremendous impact on hormone balance, health, and well-being. If necessary, I will guide you to a doctor or other healthcare professional.
Hormone balance itself has an impact on health and well-being, including your mood, bone health, and breast health. That's why it's important to investigate and address the underlying causes of any symptoms or issues, as symptoms always indicate some form of imbalance in the body.
The Dutch test and the HuMap test are helpful in various situations, including:
- Infertility and ovulation disorders
- Menstrual cycle issues and symptoms such as PMS, PMDD, or heavy periods
- PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
- Perimenopause and menopause symptoms
- Sleep problems
- Stress and fatigue conditions
- Low libido
- Weight management
- Assessing the risk of estrogen- and androgen-dependent cancers
Some metabolites of estrogens have been linked to the development of estrogen-dependent cancers (such as breast cancer), while metabolites of male hormones are associated with the development of prostate cancer. On the other hand, certain metabolites can protect cells and prevent cancer formation. Comprehensive hormone tests provide information about the levels of these metabolites, offering insights into the risk of these specific cancers.
The tests also provide information about inflammation, oxidative stress, gut health, and many other factors.
Lifestyle choices, nutrition, and supplements can influence hormone levels and their metabolites!
Dutch and HuMap tests are suitable for both women and men!
What information do the Dutch test and the HuMap test provide?
Comprehensive hormone tests conducted on urine or saliva (such as the Dutch test and the HuMap test) provide highly detailed information about the body's hormonal status, and some tests offer additional information as well.
The Dutch test and the HuMap test (read more below) provide insights into the levels and balance of female, male, and stress hormones. These tests also measure the metabolites of these hormones.
In addition to the hormones themselves, their metabolites have important effects in the body and play a crucial role in assessing hormonal status. Conventional blood tests typically do not measure hormone metabolites, and, for example, standard blood tests for estrogen only show one form. Comprehensive hormone tests conducted on urine provide a view of all three forms of estrogen and numerous significant metabolites.
The test went well thanks to the clear instructions. It was really great to have recommended names for the dietary supplements and an easy place to order them. It was also really nice to know that the dietary supplements are of high quality.
Niina provided excellent assistance in advance with the test instructions and was the best support, so inspiring and dynamic! A perfect partner when wanting to make changes in one's own life! Niina also listened carefully to my wishes, and I felt supported throughout the entire process. All communication was positive and cheerful!
I fall asleep faster now and have deeper sleep. My energy levels and focus have improved, and I noticed yesterday at the gym that my workout felt better than before.
The analysis of the results was clear, and I received easily actionable instructions. After following the recommendations, I have been sleeping incredibly well! This was the best investment in my health! I wholeheartedly recommend Niina!
The Dutch test is a comprehensive hormone test. The name "Dutch" stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones. There are different types of Dutch tests, all of which are home tests conducted on urine and/or saliva, measuring important hormones, their metabolites, and other vital substances in the body.
The most popular Dutch test, Dutch Plus, measures multiple female and male hormones (including all three forms of estrogen with their metabolites, progesterone metabolites, testosterone, DHEAS, androsterone, etc.) and their metabolites, the stress hormone cortisol and its metabolites, and includes the cortisol awakening response (CAR), the metabolite of melatonin, and various other biomarkers (substances indicative of bodily functions) important for hormone balance, such as B-vitamins, neurotransmitters, neuroinflammation, gut health, and oxidative stress. A biomarker means that the test indirectly measures the specific substance; for some substances, indirect measurement is more reliable than direct measurement.
The Dutch Plus test is suitable for both females and males. Samples are collected throughout the day, from morning to evening, using saliva and urine, totaling 9 samples.
On the other hand, Dutch Cycle Mapping provides precise information about the levels of female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) throughout the entire menstrual cycle. This test is conducted using urine and is intended specifically for females, while other hormone tests can be done for both females and males.
Additionally, there is a standalone stress hormone test (Dutch Adrenal), a standalone cortisol awakening response test (Dutch CAR), a sex hormone metabolites test (Dutch Sex hormone metabolites), and a test similar to Dutch Plus but without the cortisol awakening response (Dutch Complete). These Dutch tests are suitable for both females and males.

HuMap stands for Hormone and Urinary Metabolites Assessment Profile. HuMap comprehensively measures female and male hormones from urine (including all three forms of estrogen with their metabolites, progesterone with its metabolites, testosterone, DHEA, DHEAS, androsterone, etc.) and their metabolites, cortisol and its metabolites (but DOES NOT include the cortisol awakening response, CAR). HuMap also includes a biomarker for oxidative stress. A biomarker means that the test indirectly measures the specific substance; for some substances, indirect measurement is more reliable than direct measurement.
HuMap is suitable for both females and males, and it is conducted using two evening and two morning urine samples.
After ordering the test, you will receive detailed instructions on how to proceed.
