The 5-HIAA (5-Hydroxyindolacetic Acid) urine test measures the amount of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic Acid in the bloodstream (5-HIAA). 5-HIAA is a byproduct of serotonin, a hormone generated in the brain.

This test determines how much 5-HIAA is being produced by the body. It can also determine how much serotonin is present in the body.

Why done? 

When you develop symptoms suggestive of a carcinoid tumor, such as flushing, diarrhea, and wheezing, you should seek medical attention. Individuals who have a known serotonin-secreting carcinoid tumor may have their 5-HIAA levels checked at regular intervals following treatment to ensure that the treatment affects the carcinoid tumor.

Procedure for 5-HIAA 24 HOUR URINE test: 

A urine sample taken over 24 hours is required. To collect your urine over 24 hours, the laboratory will provide you with a container. Your healthcare professional will instruct you on how to complete this task. 

How does one prepare for the test?  

The consumption of serotonin-rich foods should be avoided for at least 12 hours before urine collection to minimize false-positive results.
