Genova: Complete Hormones (24hr)

11-Hydroxy-androsterone (24hr urine)

Optimal Result: 1.3 - 4.1 micromol/24 hr.

11-Hydroxy-androsterone is a compound that is an end product of androgen catabolism.

In the Genova complete hormone test this marker is part of the "Total 17-ketosteroids" group.

Androgens are important hormones in the health of both men and women. Testosterone and DHEA are metabolized into what is collectively known as the 17-ketosteroids (DHEA is formally included as a 17-ketosteroid). Together, these markers provide a comprehensive assessment of androgen sufficiency, as well as evaluating the need for, and monitoring of, androgen hormone therapy.

Total 17-ketosteroids (Anabolic) are used to calculate the Anabolic/Catabolic Balance (ACB).

Androgen deficiency: 
- Fatigue
- Muscle Weakness and Atrophy
- Anxiety
- Depression
- Loss of Libido

Androgen excess:
- Metabolic Syndrome (“Syndrome X”)
- Acne
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Prostatism (nocturia, dysuria)
- Male Pattern Balding

What does it mean if your 11-Hydroxy-androsterone (24hr urine) result is too low?

Low urinary 11-Hydroxy-androsterone levels are generally associated with androgen deficiency.
