What is the HYDRO PROGESTERONE Test?
The Hydro Progesterone test checks how the adrenal glands make much 17-hydroxyprogesterone hormone on top of the kidneys. It is used to make the cortisol hormone, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable, regulate metabolism, reduce inflammation, and help form memories. Cortisol deficiency can happen if the body doesn't have the suitable enzymes, which causes 17-hydroxyprogesterone to build up in the blood.
The usual range of cortisol is: There are 1000 to 300 ng/dL in new babies. People who are babies: 100 ng/dL Adults: less than 200 ng/dL.
Sometimes, very high levels of 17-hydroxyprogesterone could also signify an adrenal tumour.
High 17-hydroxyprogesterone (CAH) levels can cause congenital adrenal hyperplasia. CAH disorder can cause more body hair, a deeper voice, irregular periods, ambiguous genitals, and infertility.
You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
