ACTH Stimulation For 17-OHP 1

ACTH Stimulation For 17-OHP 1

Before and after an injection of synthetic ACTH, a person's blood cortisol levels are measured. 17-OHP levels will rise significantly in patients with CAH stimulated by ACTH. 17-OHP levels are frequently high in premature neonates.

Why done? 

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a rare genetic condition diagnosed with a 17-OHP test. In CAH, the adrenal glands cannot produce adequate cortisol due to a genetic abnormality known as a mutation. The adrenal glands create more 17-OHP and other male sex hormones when they work harder to produce more cortisol.

ACTH stimulation test procedure: 

Your blood has been drained.
• ACTH is then injected into a muscle in your shoulder, generally. The ACTH may be synthetic.
• If your ACTH levels are high enough, your blood is drawn again after 30 minutes or more.
• All blood samples are subjected to cortisol testing in the laboratory.

ACTH stimulation test protocol?  

Avoid exercise and emotional stress 12 hours before the test.
• After midnight, avoid eating or drinking anything.
• Make sure that you get enough sleep.
• Inform Doctor about any prescription or non-prescription medications, supplements, vitamins, herbs, and recreational or illicit drugs you are currently using or considering using.
