Androstenedione Stimulation by ACTH Test

-11%

The Androstenedione Stimulation by ACTH Test is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the adrenal gland’s function by measuring the level of androstenedione, a steroid hormone, in the body after the administration of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal glands to release cortisol and androstenedione. This test is particularly useful in diagnosing conditions related to adrenal and pituitary glands, such as adrenal hyperplasia or Addison’s disease.

The test involves the administration of synthetic ACTH, followed by blood samples taken at specific intervals to measure the androstenedione levels. These levels are then analyzed to assess how well the adrenal glands respond to ACTH, providing valuable information on adrenal function and helping in the diagnosis of related disorders.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Androstenedione Stimulation by ACTH Test is offered at a cost of 850 AED. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and employs advanced testing methodologies to ensure accurate and reliable results. The test is conducted under the supervision of experienced medical professionals, ensuring the highest standards of care and precision.

ANDROSTENEDIONE STIMULATION BY ACTH Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the Androstenedione Stimulation by ACTH Test to evaluate the function of the adrenal glands. This medical test measures the ability of the adrenal glands to produce the hormone androstenedione in response to stimulation by adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH).

Test Details

The Androstenedione stimulation by ACTH test is a valuable tool in diagnosing adrenal insufficiency or adrenal gland disorders. The test involves taking a baseline blood sample to measure the initial level of androstenedione in the blood. Then, a synthetic form of ACTH is administered, usually through an injection. After a period of time, typically 30 to 60 minutes, another blood sample is taken to measure the level of androstenedione in response to the ACTH stimulation.

Test Department: DNA Labs UAE

Pre Test Information

Overnight fasting is mandatory. Synthetic ACTH (Synacthen) is not supplied by DNA Labs UAE.

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Interpretation

The Androstenedione stimulation by ACTH test is an important tool in diagnosing adrenal insufficiency or adrenal gland disorders. If the adrenal glands are functioning properly, the level of androstenedione in the blood should increase significantly after ACTH stimulation. However, if the adrenal glands are not able to produce enough androstenedione, it may indicate adrenal insufficiency or dysfunction.

It is important to note that the Androstenedione stimulation by ACTH test is just one tool used in the evaluation of adrenal function and should be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical findings and test results.
