What is the 17 OH Progesterone Test for?
Our adrenal glands produce a hormone called 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OH progesterone) Adrenal glands are the two small glands located above each kidney. The 17 Oh Progesterone gets converted into a hormone called Cortisol after mixing with some special enzymes, or proteins. Cortisol, which is released uniformly in varying amounts is found in high levels at the time of physical or mental stress. It also regulates metabolism and the immune system.
People lacking the appropriate enzymes often face cortisol deficiency which results in a buildup of 17 OH Progesterone in the blood. High levels of 17 OH Progesterone points to a condition known as Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). CAH is a glandular disorder. It affects the adrenal glands which as a result become unable to build enough cortisol. It can also impact in high production of male sex hormones called androgens.
Regardless of gender, CAH can occur in both boys or girls. Disorders like ambiguous genitalia, pubic hair, or acne are found in young children with CAH.
Infants, when affected by CAH suffer from severe conditions like dehydration or sock. Hence, it is recommended to include the 17 OH Progesterone test in every newborn’s initial medical tests.
