    17 – HYDROXYPROGESTERONE (17-OHP)

    0 out of 5

    17 OHP along with Cortisol and Androstenedione constitutes the best screening test for Congenital adrenal hyperplasia caused by either 11 or 21 hydroxylase deficiency. It is also useful to evaluate females with hirsutism and infertility.

    17 – KETOSTEROIDS, 24–HOUR URINE

    0 out of 5

    17-ketosteroids (17-KS) are derived from adrenal cortex and testes and are excreted in the urine. These are metabolites of adrenal and gonadal androgenic steroids. In men, 60-70% & in women nearly 100% of these are produced in the adrenal cortex. They are useful in evaluating gonadal and adrenal disorders.

    0 out of 5

    Timed response testing of 17-OHP provides a sensitive measure for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia.

    • Pre-test Information:

      Overnight fasting is mandatory. Synthetic ACTH (Synacthen) is not supplied by LPL.

    5α- DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE; 5α- DHT

    0 out of 5

    This assay is useful for monitoring patients receiving 5 alpha reductase inhibitor therapy or chemotherapy. It also helps to evaluate patients with possible 5 Alpha reducatse deficiency. Low levels are seen in patients on 5 Alpha reductase inhibitor therapy and in cases of genetic 5 Alpha reductase deficiency.

    ACTH

    0 out of 5

    This assay is used to determine the cause of Hypocortisolism & Hypercortisolism states. In a patient with hypocortisolism, an elevated ACTH indicates Primary adrenal insufficiency whereas normal levels are consistent with secondary adranal insufficiency from pituitary or hypothalamic causes. In a patient of hypercortisolism (Cushing’s syndrome), a suppressed value is consistent with Cortisol producing Adrenal adenoma/carcinoma, Primary adrenal micronodular hyperplasia & Exogenous corticosteroid use.

    • Pre-test Information:

      Draw blood between 8–10 a.m.
