17-OH Progesterone Test

What is the 17-OH Progesterone Test?

Also known as 17 HydroxyProgesterone, 17-OH Progesterone, and 17α-Hydroxyprogesterone (17α-OHP), is a quantitative test that measures the amount of 17-hydroxyprogesterone level in the blood. This hormone is produced by the adrenal glands that are just located above the kidneys. Increased levels of this hormone can help to diagnose a condition known as congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). 

Under normal circumstances, 17-hydroxyprogesterone is converted into cortisol which plays many important functions in our body. Cortisol is the stress hormone that also affects our body’s immune responses and helps with the regulation of blood sugar levels. Poor conversion of 17- OH progesterone level to cortisol results enhances the levels of 17-hydroxyprogesterone level in the body. This test alongside two others can be used as a diagnostic tool for congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
