A 39-year-old female asked:
Had catecholamine test. after injection, dopamine result was still <30. normal range if 0-48. my epinephrine was <15. normal is 0-62. meaning/cause?

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?
