5a-Tetrahydrocortisol (Pre-menopausal)

Optimal Result: 200 - 1300 ng/mg Creat/Day.

What does it mean if your 5a-Tetrahydrocortisol (Pre-menopausal) result is too low?

5A-THF is a terminal metabolite of cortisol metabolized via 5-alpha reductase. This metabolite along with the other terminal metabolites can be used to determine metabolized cortisol. Research in low levels of a single terminal metabolites is limited, assessing metabolized cortisol and daily output may provide more clinically relevant information.

What does it mean if your 5a-Tetrahydrocortisol (Pre-menopausal) result is too high?

5A-THF is a terminal metabolite of cortisol metabolized via 5-alpha reductase. Combining all the terminal metabolites can be used to estimate metabolized cortisol. While research into single terminal metabolite elevations is limited, it may have more clinical relevance when assessed in combination with the daily output of free cortisol.
