When patients suffer from insomnia, the 5 salivary cortisol measurements on
the DUTCH Plus may not be enough to assess cortisol’s potential role in the sleep disturbances. Salivary measurements typically begin when the patient wakes and rises in the morning. It would be very helpful to also provide cortisol levels in the middle of the night when the patient is struggling to sleep. Determining cortisol’s potential role will help the provider treat the patient’s insomnia with precision. The DUTCH Plus now offers insight into this question.
The DUTCH Plus kit features an optional 6th salivary sample dubbed the “Insomnia Sample.” The patients can collect this sample if they are struggling to sleep in the middle of the night. Because they are using the convenient swab collection, this can easily be done without further disturbing the patient’s sleep.
