Frequently Asked Questions

This test measures the concentration of 17-hydroxycorticosteroids in the urine, providing insights into adrenal gland function and related hormonal disorders.
• It helps to assess adrenocortical function and to diagnose glucocorticoid-related disorders. • The test is typically performed to diagnose and monitor adrenal gland disorders, such as Cushing's syndrome and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. • It helps assess the production of cortisol and other related hormones.
• This test is recommended when there is suspicion of adrenal gland dysfunction. • It is often ordered for individuals exhibiting symptoms like excessive fatigue, weight gain, or abnormal hair growth, which may be indicative of hormonal disorders.
A positive result may suggest elevated levels of 17-hydroxycorticosteroids in the urine, which could indicate adrenal gland abnormalities.
The test involves collecting a urine sample, usually over a 24-hour period. The sample is then analyzed using column chromatography to measure 17-hydroxycorticosteroid levels.
Patients may be advised to follow specific instructions, such as avoiding certain medications or dietary restrictions, before collecting the urine sample for the test. Many analytes like VMA, 5 HIAA, and adrenaline may require drug avoidance as well as bananas, tea, coffee, and cold drink avoidance for accurate results. It's essential to follow your healthcare provider's guidance for accurate results.
Additional tests that may be ordered alongside the 17 OH Corticosteroids test include: • Cortisol Testing: Cortisol is another hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Testing cortisol levels can provide additional information about adrenal function and help differentiate between various adrenal disorders. • ACTH Stimulation Test: This test involves injecting synthetic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and measuring cortisol levels in response. It helps determine the cause of adrenal insufficiency or Cushing's syndrome. • Dexamethasone Suppression Test: This test involves administering dexamethasone, a synthetic corticosteroid, and measuring cortisol levels to assess adrenal function and diagnose conditions like Cushing's syndrome. • Aldosterone and Renin Testing: These tests assess the levels of aldosterone and renin in the blood, which are hormones involved in regulating blood pressure and fluid balance. They can help diagnose disorders like primary aldosteronism or secondary aldosteronism. • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): This panel includes various blood tests, including electrolyte levels, glucose, and kidney function markers, which can provide valuable information about overall health and potential adrenal-related issues. • Genetic Testing: In some cases, genetic testing may be recommended to identify inherited adrenal disorders, such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH).
