Steroid Panel for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia CAH Test

940 د.إ

-10%

The Steroid Panel for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) Test is a comprehensive diagnostic assessment aimed at identifying the presence of CAH, a genetic disorder affecting the adrenal glands. This condition can lead to an imbalance in steroid hormones, including cortisol, aldosterone, and androgens, which are crucial for maintaining various bodily functions. The test analyzes specific hormone levels to detect abnormalities indicative of CAH, facilitating early diagnosis and management of the condition.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading laboratory known for its advanced diagnostic solutions, this test offers a reliable means of assessing the risk or presence of CAH. The cost of the test is 940 AED, reflecting the intricate processes and technology involved in accurately measuring and interpreting the levels of multiple hormones. Early detection through this steroid panel can significantly impact the treatment and management of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, improving the quality of life for affected individuals.

Test Details

A steroid panel for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) typically includes several tests to evaluate the levels of different steroid hormones in the body. These tests may include:

  1. 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) level: This is the primary marker for CAH and is elevated in individuals with the condition. High levels of 17-OHP indicate impaired cortisol synthesis.
  2. Cortisol level: Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. In CAH, cortisol production may be reduced or impaired, leading to low cortisol levels.
  3. Aldosterone level: Aldosterone is another steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. In CAH, aldosterone production may also be affected, resulting in abnormal levels.
  4. Androgen levels: CAH can cause excessive production of androgens, such as testosterone, leading to masculinization in females and early puberty in both sexes. Testing androgen levels can help evaluate the severity of androgen excess.
  5. ACTH stimulation test: This test measures the response of the adrenal glands to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). It helps assess the adrenal gland’s ability to produce cortisol in response to stimulation.
  6. Electrolyte levels: CAH can affect the balance of electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, due to impaired aldosterone production. Measuring electrolyte levels can help identify any imbalances.

These tests collectively provide valuable information about the hormonal imbalances associated with CAH and help guide treatment decisions. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional for proper interpretation of test results and management of CAH.
