The adrenal glands produce the 17-Hydroxyprogesterone hormone (17-OH progesterone). These are two tiny glands on top of each kidney. 17-OH progesterone transforms into a hormone called by specific enzymes or proteins. Cortisol is essential in the regulation of metabolism and the immune system. As the adrenal glands work harder to produce more cortisol, they have more 17-OHP and other male sex hormones. The cost of the 17 OHP test Malcha Marg varies according to location and facility. CAH can result in abnormal sex organ development and sexual traits. The disorder can cause severe symptoms. If left untreated, the most potent forms of CAH can result in serious problems such as dehydration, low blood pressure, and irregular pulse (arrhythmia). The 17 Hydroxy Progesterone test results Malcha Marg are available three days after the blood sample is collected.
A 17-OHP test does not require any extra preparation
The average outcomes are as follows: Babies older than 24 hours - less than 400 to 600 nanograms per decilitre (ng/dL) or 12.12 to 18.18 nanomoles per litre (nmol/L). Before puberty, children had levels of approximately 100 ng/dL (3.03 nmol/L).
Elevated 17-hydroxyprogesterone levels can be caused by congenital adrenal hyperplasia and ovarian or adrenal cancers
