Diagnosis and differential diagnosis of hyperandrogenism (along with other sex steroids measurements). An initial test in adults could also include measurements of total and bioavailable testosterone (TTBS/testosterone, total and bioavailable, serum). Depending on the results, this may be supplemented by measurements of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG/Sex Hormone Binding Globulin [SHBG], serum) and other androgenic steroids (eg, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate [DHEA-S]).
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) diagnosis, along with measurement of other androgen precursors, in particular, 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone (OHPG) (OHPG/17-hydroxyprogesterone, serum), 17 alpha-hydroxypregnenolone, DHEA-S (DHES/dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate [DHEA-S], Serum) and cortisol (CORT / Cortisol, Serum).
CAH treatment follow-up, along with testosterone (TTST/testosterone, total, serum), OHPG (OHPG/17-hydroxyprogesterone, serum), DHEA-S (DHES/dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate [DHEA-S], serum), and DHEA ( DHEA_ / Dehydroepiandrosterone [DHEA], Serum).
Premature adrenarche diagnosis, along with gonadotropins (FSH / Follicle Stimulating Hormone [FSH], Serum; LH / Luteinizing Hormone [LH], Serum) and other adrenal and gonadal sex steroids and their precursors (TTBS / Testosterone, Total and Bioavailable, Serum or TGRP / Testosterone, Total and Free, Serum; EEST / Estradiol, Serum; DHES / Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate [DHEA-S], Serum; DHEA_ / Dehydroepiandrosterone [DHEA], Serum; SHBG / Sex Hormone Binding Globulin [SHBG], Serum; OHPG / 17-Hydroxyprogesterone, Serum).
