-10%

The Porphobilinogen (PBG) Quantitative 24-Hour Urine Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at measuring the levels of porphobilinogen in the urine over a 24-hour period. Porphobilinogen is a crucial precursor in the biosynthesis of heme, an essential component of hemoglobin, myoglobin, and various other enzymes. Abnormal levels of PBG in urine can be indicative of various disorders, most notably acute intermittent porphyria (AIP), a rare metabolic disorder that affects the production of heme.

This test requires patients to collect all urine produced over a 24-hour period in a provided container, which is then analyzed by the laboratory. The procedure is critical for diagnosing or ruling out suspected cases of porphyria and monitoring the disease’s progression or response to treatment.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility known for its advanced diagnostic technologies and expertise in genetic and metabolic disorders, the Porphobilinogen Quantitative 24-Hour Urine Test is priced at 820 AED. The cost reflects the comprehensive approach taken by the lab, including the use of sophisticated testing methodologies to ensure accurate and reliable results. Patients opting for this test at DNA Labs UAE can expect professional service and detailed insights into their metabolic health.

Test Details:

The PBG quantitative 24-hour urine test is a diagnostic test used to measure the levels of porphobilinogen (PBG) in a person’s urine over a 24-hour period. PBG is a chemical compound involved in the production of heme, a component of hemoglobin. The test is primarily used to diagnose and monitor the treatment of certain porphyria disorders, which are a group of rare genetic conditions that affect the production of heme.

Porphobilinogen is typically elevated in the urine of individuals with acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) and other forms of porphyria. During the test, the patient collects all urine produced over a 24-hour period in a special container provided by the laboratory. The container may contain preservatives to ensure the stability of the sample. The collected urine is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

The laboratory measures the concentration of PBG in the urine sample using various methods, such as spectrophotometry or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The results are typically reported as a numeric value, representing the amount of PBG excreted in a 24-hour period.

Elevated levels of PBG in the urine may indicate a diagnosis of acute intermittent porphyria or other porphyria disorders. However, it is important to note that a single elevated PBG level does not confirm a diagnosis, as other factors and tests may be necessary to establish a definitive diagnosis.

It is essential to follow any specific instructions provided by the healthcare provider or laboratory when collecting the urine sample for the PBG quantitative 24-hour urine test. Additionally, certain medications, diet, and other factors may affect the test results, so it is important to inform the healthcare provider about any relevant information before the test.
