-10%

The 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (5-HIAA) 24-Hour Urine Test is a diagnostic examination performed to measure the levels of 5-HIAA, a metabolite of serotonin, in the urine over a 24-hour period. This test is crucial for diagnosing and monitoring conditions related to serotonin metabolism, such as carcinoid syndrome, a condition where a carcinoid tumor secretes large amounts of serotonin leading to various symptoms including flushing, diarrhea, and heart disease. The test involves the collection of all urine produced in a 24-hour period, which is then analyzed for 5-HIAA content.

At DNA Labs UAE, the test is offered at a cost of 820 AED. The facility ensures precise and reliable results, utilizing advanced laboratory techniques for the analysis. Conducting the test in a controlled environment, such as DNA Labs UAE, guarantees the accuracy and reliability of the results, which are essential for the correct diagnosis and subsequent treatment planning of conditions associated with abnormal serotonin metabolism.

Test Details: The 5-HIAA (5-Hydroxy Indole Acetic Acid) 24-hour urine test is a diagnostic test used to measure the levels of 5-HIAA in the urine. 5-HIAA is a breakdown product of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep. This test is primarily used to detect and monitor carcinoid tumors, which are rare neuroendocrine tumors that can produce excessive amounts of serotonin. Carcinoid tumors most commonly occur in the gastrointestinal tract, particularly in the appendix, small intestine, and rectum. To perform the test, the patient collects all urine produced over a 24-hour period. The urine is then sent to a laboratory, where the level of 5-HIAA is measured. Elevated levels of 5-HIAA may indicate the presence of a carcinoid tumor. It is important to follow specific instructions provided by the healthcare provider for accurate test results. These instructions may include avoiding certain foods, medications, and activities that can affect serotonin levels prior to the test. The 5-HIAA 24-hour urine test is just one component of the diagnostic process for carcinoid tumors. Other tests, such as blood tests, imaging studies (such as CT scans or MRI), and endoscopic procedures, may also be performed to confirm the presence of a tumor and determine its location and extent.
