The “Steroid Panel for PCOS Non-Classical CAH Differentiation Test” is a specialized diagnostic tool used to distinguish between Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and Non-Classical Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (NCAH), two conditions that share similar clinical features but require different treatment approaches. This test analyzes a range of steroid hormones to identify specific patterns that may indicate the presence of either condition. By measuring levels of hormones such as cortisol, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, and androgens, this panel helps in accurately diagnosing and guiding the appropriate management for affected individuals. The test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility in genetic and hormonal testing, ensuring precise and reliable results. The cost of the test is 700 AED, making it an accessible option for patients seeking clarity on their symptoms and a path towards effective treatment.

STEROID PANEL FOR PCOS NON-CLASSICAL CAH DIFFERENTIATION Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the STEROID PANEL FOR PCOS NON-CLASSICAL CAH DIFFERENTIATION test to help diagnose and differentiate between Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). This test is commonly used by endocrinologists and pediatricians to evaluate hormone levels and aid in the diagnosis of these conditions.

Test Components

  • Androstenedione
  • DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate)
  • 17-α-Hydroxyprogesterone
  • Total Testosterone

Price

The cost of the STEROID PANEL FOR PCOS NON-CLASSICAL CAH DIFFERENTIATION test is AED 700.0.

Sample Condition

For this test, a minimum of 2 mL of serum is required. The sample should be collected in a Red Top (No Additive) tube and should not be collected in SST gel barrier tubes. The sample should be shipped refrigerated or frozen. It is important to note that there is diurnal variation, so the sample should be taken between 8-10 am. Please specify the time and date on the specimen container and test request form.

Report Delivery

Sample collection is done on Monday and Thursday by 9 am, and the report is delivered on Wednesday and Saturday.

Method

The STEROID PANEL FOR PCOS NON-CLASSICAL CAH DIFFERENTIATION test is performed using LC-MS/MS (Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry/Mass Spectrometry) method.

Test Type

This test falls under the category of Disorders of Adrenal Gland.

Doctor

This test is typically requested by endocrinologists and pediatricians.

Test Department

The STEROID PANEL FOR PCOS NON-CLASSICAL CAH DIFFERENTIATION test is conducted in our Genetic department.

Pre Test Information

The sample for this test should be taken between 8-10 am. For menstruating females, the sample should be given in the first 10 days of the menstrual cycle.

Test Details

A steroid panel for PCOS and non-classical CAH differentiation typically includes the following tests:

  1. Testosterone: Measures the levels of testosterone, a male hormone that can be elevated in both PCOS and non-classical CAH.
  2. DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate): Measures the levels of DHEAS, a precursor to testosterone, which can be elevated in non-classical CAH.
  3. Androstenedione: Measures the levels of androstenedione, another precursor to testosterone, which can be elevated in both PCOS and non-classical CAH.
  4. 17-α-Hydroxyprogesterone: Measures the levels of 17-α-hydroxyprogesterone, which is elevated in non-classical CAH but not in PCOS.
  5. LH (Luteinizing Hormone): Measures the levels of LH, a hormone involved in regulating the menstrual cycle. LH can be elevated in both PCOS and non-classical CAH.
  6. FSH (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone): Measures the levels of FSH, a hormone involved in stimulating the growth of ovarian follicles. FSH levels are typically normal or lower in PCOS and non-classical CAH.

These tests help differentiate between PCOS and non-classical CAH by evaluating the levels of various hormones involved in the regulation of the reproductive system. It is important to note that the specific tests included in a steroid panel may vary depending on the healthcare provider and the individual’s symptoms and medical history.
