The 17-Hydroxy-Corticosteroids and 17-Ketosteroids 24 Hour Urine Test is a comprehensive diagnostic assessment conducted at DNA Labs UAE, designed to measure the levels of specific steroid hormones in the body. This test plays a crucial role in evaluating the functioning of the adrenal glands and can aid in the diagnosis of disorders related to adrenal and gonadal function. The test requires the collection of all urine produced in a 24-hour period, which is then analyzed for concentrations of 17-hydroxycorticosteroids and 17-ketosteroids. These metabolites are indicative of the body’s cortisol and androgen levels, respectively, providing valuable insights into the hormonal balance and potential abnormalities. The cost of this detailed and informative test is 2820 AED. Given its significance, it is a pivotal tool in the diagnosis and management of conditions such as Cushing’s syndrome, adrenal hyperplasia, and other related hormonal disorders. DNA Labs UAE ensures precise and reliable results, making it an essential diagnostic step for patients experiencing symptoms related to hormonal imbalances.

Test Details

The 17-Hydroxy-Corticosteroids and 17-Ketosteroids 24-hour urine test is a diagnostic test used to measure the levels of these hormones in a person’s urine over a 24-hour period. Corticosteroids are hormones produced by the adrenal glands that play a role in regulating metabolism, immune response, and stress response.

17-Hydroxy-Corticosteroids specifically refer to a group of corticosteroids that have a hydroxyl group (OH) attached to the 17th carbon atom. Ketosteroids, on the other hand, are metabolic byproducts of androgens (male sex hormones) and glucocorticoids (another type of corticosteroid). 17-Ketosteroids refer to a group of ketosteroids that have a ketone group (C=O) attached to the 17th carbon atom.

The 24-hour urine test involves collecting all urine produced over a 24-hour period. This provides a more comprehensive picture of hormone levels compared to a single urine sample. The collected urine is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

The test is primarily used to evaluate adrenal gland function and diagnose certain conditions such as Cushing’s syndrome or adrenal tumors. It can also help monitor the effectiveness of treatment for these conditions.

It is important to follow the specific instructions provided by the healthcare provider for the 24-hour urine collection, as any deviations may affect the accuracy of the test results. It is also important to inform the healthcare provider about any medications or supplements being taken, as they can potentially interfere with the test results.

Overall, the 17-Hydroxy-Corticosteroids and 17-Ketosteroids 24-hour urine test is a valuable tool in assessing adrenal gland function and diagnosing certain hormonal disorders.
