17-Hydroxyprogesterone Test - More Information

The 17-OH progesterone test, also known as a 17-hydroxyprogesterone test, 17-OH lab test and 17-hydroxyprogesterone blood test, measures the 17-hydroxyprogesterone blood level.

Elevated 17-hydroxyprogesterone levels are found in people with a condition known as congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). CAH is a genetic disease typically caused by a mutation in the gene for 21-hydroxylase. CAH often leads to high ACTH levels and low cortisol levels because people with this condition cannot use 17-hydroxyprogesterone (a normal building block for cortisol) to make cortisol. For this reason, the 17-hydroxyprogesterone lab test is sometimes ordered along with the ACTH test and the cortisol test. 17-OH progesterone levels are also sometimes tracked in people who are getting cortisol replacement therapy and as part of an infertility workup.
