NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
Diagnosis and differential diagnosis of hyperandrogenism (in conjunction with measurements of other sex-steroids). An initial workup in adults might also include total and bioavailable testosterone (TTBS/80065 Testosterone, Total and Bioavailable, Serum) measurements. Depending on results, this may be supplemented with measurements of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG Sex Hormone Binding Globulin [SHBG], Serum) and other androgenic steroids (eg, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate [DHEA-S]).
Diagnosis of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), in conjunction with measurement of other androgenic precursors, particularly, 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone (OHPG) (OHPG/9231 17-Hydroxyprogesterone, Serum), 17 alpha-hydroxypregnenolone, DHEA-S (DHES Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate [DHEA-S], Serum), and cortisol (CORT Cortisol, Serum).
Monitoring CAH treatment, in conjunction with testosterone (TTST Testosterone, Total, Serum), OHPG, DHEA-S (DHES Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate [DHEA-S], Serum), and DHEA (DHEA_/81405 Dehydroepiandrosterone [DHEA], Serum).
Diagnosis of premature adrenarche, in conjunction with gonadotropins (FSH Follicle-Stimulating Hormone [FSH], Serum; LH Luteinizing Hormone [LH], Serum) and other adrenal and gonadal sex-steroids and their precursors (TTBS/80065 Testosterone, Total and Bioavailable, Serum or TGRP/8508 Testosterone, Total and Free, Serum; EEST/81816 Estradiol, Serum; DHES Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate [DHEA-S], Serum; DHEA_/81405 Dehydroepiandrosterone [DHEA], Serum; SHBG Sex Hormone Binding Globulin [SHBG], Serum; OHPG/9231 17-Hydroxyprogesterone, Serum).
