General Information

Determination of 17-hydroxycorticoid in urine

17-OH-corticosteroids are produced by the metabolism of cortisol in the liver and other tissues. Determination of 17-OH-corticosteroids in urine is used to estimate the amount of cortisol produced. The test is often used in the diagnostics of Cushing's syndrome.

 

Research material

24 hour urine

 

How to prepare for the test

Before collecting a urine sample, it is recommended to stop taking such medications as:

contraceptives

Antibiotics

Glucocorticoids

Possible interpretation of the results

Indicators of the norm (24 in an hourly urine sample)

0-2 years - 2.0 - 4.0 mg/24 hours

2-6 years - 3.0 - 6.0 mg/24 hours

6-10 years - 4.0 - 8.0 mg/24 hours

10-14 years - 4.0 - 10.0 mg/24 hours

Women 14-99 years old – 4.0 – 14.0 mg/24 hours

Men 14-99 years old – 7.0 – 19.0 mg/24 hours

Reference values

17OH- An increase in the corticoid level characterizes the following pathologies:

Cushing's syndrome caused by adrenal gland tumor - hyperproduction of cortisol

depression

Treatment with hydrocortisone

Malnutrition

obesity

pregnancy

Arterial hypertension caused by hormonal reasons

extreme physical and emotional stress

Pituitary tumor with excess production of adrenocorticotropic hormone

 

 

17OH-Decreasing the corticoid level characterizes the following pathologies:

Adrenal gland failure (not producing enough cortisol)

In the case of functional failure of the pituitary gland - with a decrease in the production of adrenocorticotropic hormone

Congenital enzyme deficiency

The condition after the surgical removal of the adrenal gland
