The 17-ketosteroids are the major metabolites of DHEA and testosterone and reveal that these androgens have effectively been used. The 17-ketosteroids and total OH Corticoids are a measure of anabolism and catabolism respectively. Their ratio gives an indication of adrenal insufficiency.

Patient Brochure

The 17-hydroxy steroids measure reduced products of cortisol and its immediate precursor, 11-deoxycortisol, excreted in urine.  The results provide an indication of the activity of the glucocorticoid pathway (amount of steroids catabolised and excreted).

The 17-ketosteroids measure DHEA and the reduced catabolic product of 4-androstenedione, androsterone.  The results indicate the activity of the androgen pathway.
