Also Known As
Pregnenolone, Mass Spectrometry Blood Test
Purpose of the Pregnenolone Blood Test
This test is primarily used to detect adrenal gland disorders categorized as congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH). These types of genetic conditions, diagnosed at any time from birth through adulthood, affect pregnenolone, which is responsible for producing important steroid hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, and progesterone. Pregnenolone also has anti-inflammatory properties, which may help bolster the body’s immune system.
What Does the Pregnenolone Test Measure?
This test analyzes your levels of this hormone to determine if they are too high or too low.
Who Should Take a Pregnenolone Lab Test?
People generally measure their pregnenolone ms levels as part of a CAH diagnosis, or to monitor treatment of this condition. Symptoms can vary, depending on the hormone(s) affected by irregular pregnenolone levels.
