Results are normal.: The catecholamines are checked to see if there is excessive production of hormones from the adrenal medulla. This may results in high blood pressure, palpitations, sweating, headaches, anxiety / panic. Your levels are normal and this is reassuring. What injection did you receive before checking for dopamine?
