The Catecholamines Fractionated 24-Hour Urine Test is a diagnostic procedure conducted to measure the levels of catecholamines in the urine over a 24-hour period. Catecholamines are hormones produced by the adrenal glands, including adrenaline (epinephrine), noradrenaline (norepinephrine), and dopamine. These hormones are crucial for the body’s stress response and help regulate heart rate, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.

This test is particularly useful in diagnosing or monitoring conditions associated with abnormal catecholamine production, such as pheochromocytoma, a rare tumor of the adrenal gland tissue, or neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that affects nerve tissue. Symptoms prompting this test may include high blood pressure, severe headaches, rapid heart rate, sweating, and anxiety.

To perform the test, individuals are required to collect all urine produced over a 24-hour period in a provided container. This method ensures a comprehensive assessment of catecholamine levels throughout the day, offering valuable insights into the body’s catecholamine production.

The test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading laboratory known for its advanced diagnostic services. The cost of the Catecholamines Fractionated 24-Hour Urine Test is 1050 AED. Given the critical nature of the conditions associated with catecholamine levels, this test is an important tool for healthcare providers in diagnosing and managing these conditions effectively.

Test Details

The Catecholamines Fractionated 24-Hour Urine test is a diagnostic test used to measure the levels of catecholamines in a person’s urine over a 24-hour period. Catecholamines are a group of hormones and neurotransmitters that include adrenaline, noradrenaline, and dopamine. These substances are produced by the adrenal glands and play a role in regulating the body’s response to stress, as well as controlling blood pressure and heart rate.

This test is typically ordered to evaluate a person’s adrenal gland function and to diagnose conditions such as pheochromocytoma, a rare tumor that affects the adrenal glands and causes excessive catecholamine production. Symptoms of pheochromocytoma include high blood pressure, palpitations, sweating, and anxiety.

During the test, the patient collects all urine produced over a 24-hour period in a special container provided by the laboratory. The urine sample is then analyzed for levels of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and dopamine. The results of the test can help healthcare providers determine if there is an excess or deficiency of these hormones, which can aid in the diagnosis and management of various conditions.

It is important to follow specific instructions provided by the healthcare provider or laboratory when collecting the urine sample to ensure accurate results. Some medications and foods can interfere with the test, so it may be necessary to temporarily discontinue certain medications or avoid certain foods before the test.

Overall, the Catecholamines Fractionated 24-Hour Urine test is a valuable tool in assessing adrenal gland function and diagnosing conditions related to catecholamine imbalance. It helps healthcare providers make informed decisions regarding treatment and management plans for their patients.
