17 - Alpha Hydroxy Progesterone Test - Price, Normal Range | Sprint Diagnostics

The 17-Alpha Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) test measures the amount of 17-OHP in the blood, which can indicate adrenal gland disorders like Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). This hormone is involved in the production of cortisol, a hormone that helps your body respond to stress, maintains blood pressure, regulates metabolism, and reduces inflammation.

CAH is a group of genetic disorders that cause abnormal cortisol and androgen production in the adrenal glands. Early detection of CAH, particularly in newborns, is crucial to prevent potentially severe symptoms and complications, including life-threatening salt-wasting crises.
