The 17 OH PROGESTERONE test determines how much 17-hydroxyprogesterone is present in the blood. The adrenal glands, which are two glands placed on top of the kidneys, produce 17-OHP in the body. Cortisol is one of the hormones produced by the adrenal glands, It is required for the maintenance of hypertension, blood sugar, and some immune response functions. 17-OHP is created during the cortisol production pathway.
A 17-OHP Test is used to identify congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a rare genetic condition (CAH). CAH is caused by a genetic abnormality that inhibits the adrenal gland from producing enough cortisol. The adrenal glands create more 17-OHP and certain sex hormones when they work harder to release more cortisol.
CAH can lead to aberrant sex organ development and sexual traits. The disorder's symptoms range from moderate to severe. The more severe forms of CAH, if not addressed, can lead to serious problems such as dehydration, low blood pressure, and an irregular heartbeat. When diagnosing CAH in newborns, the 17-OHP test is most commonly employed.
According to doctors, all babies should get a 17-OH progesterone test to exclude out the risk of hereditary adrenal hyperplasia.
