What is Serotonin 5-Hydroxytryptamine Test?

This is a blood test used to determine the level of serotonin in the body. It is also referred to as the 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) test. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain that transmits messages between nerve cells and is also involved in the wake-sleep cycle. Serotonin is normally present in trace amounts in the blood. Some carcinoid tumours may secrete large amounts of it continuously or intermittently. The serotonin test is used to screen for carcinoid tumours.
