The Porphyrins Total Quantitative 24-Hour Urine Test is a diagnostic examination performed to measure the levels of porphyrins in urine over a 24-hour period. Porphyrins are organic compounds crucial in the formation of heme, an essential component of hemoglobin and certain enzymes. Abnormal levels of porphyrins in the urine can indicate a variety of conditions, including porphyria—a group of disorders related to enzyme deficiencies in the heme production pathway—and liver diseases. This test is particularly useful for individuals exhibiting symptoms such as abdominal pain, skin sensitivity to light, and neurological issues, which may be indicative of porphyria. Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, the cost of this comprehensive test is 1030 AED. It provides valuable insights, aiding healthcare professionals in diagnosing, monitoring, and managing the conditions associated with altered porphyrin levels.

Test Details

The porphyrins total quantitative 24-hour urine test is a medical test that measures the levels of porphyrins in a person’s urine over a 24-hour period. Porphyrins are a group of organic compounds that are involved in the production of heme, a component of hemoglobin and other important proteins in the body.

This test is typically ordered to evaluate the presence and severity of porphyria, a group of rare genetic disorders that affect the production of heme. Porphyrin levels can be elevated in individuals with porphyria, and the specific pattern of porphyrins can help determine the type of porphyria present.

During the test, the individual collects all of their urine over a 24-hour period in a special container provided by the laboratory. The container may contain preservatives to ensure the stability of the urine during this time. The collected urine is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

The laboratory will measure the total amount of porphyrins in the urine sample and provide the results in micrograms per 24 hours. The reference range for porphyrins can vary depending on the laboratory and the specific porphyrin being measured.

Elevated levels of porphyrins in the urine may indicate the presence of porphyria or other conditions that affect heme production. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to interpret the test results and determine the appropriate course of action.
