5a-DHT

DUTCH

A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 6.6 ng/mg.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT, 5-dihydrotestosterone, 5a-DHT) is an endogenous androgen sex steroid and hormone. Testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by the action of 5α-reductase in target tissues.

Although it is about one-tenth as abundant as testosterone, it accounts for most of testosterone’s biological action and is in part responsible for the development of the prostate, utricle, scrotum, penis, glans penis and the male type urethra.

Function of DHT test:

To help diagnose male pattern baldness and a 5α-reductase deficiency.
