What are the symptoms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia?

What are the symptoms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia?

Classic or non?: Classic cah is diagnosed mostly on newborn screening. It results from a block in the synthesis of cortisol and usually also aldosterone. Females will often have ambiguous genitalia. Males don't look different. Permanent replacement with Hydrocortisone & Fludrocortisone (may not need past childhood) are needed for sustaining life and salt balance. Pediatric endocrinologists follow very closely. ...Read more

What are symptoms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia in girls?

It varies: Persons with the most common form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (cah) have a predisposition to make extra testosterone. For girls can manifest as genitalia that is "masculinized" before birth and therefore "ambiguous" at birth. Some girls can also have "salt wasting". Girls can also have somewhat masculinized behaviors. Testosterone levels can be lowered by therapy. www.caresfoundation.org. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia and can I fight them?

What are the symptoms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia and can I fight them?

Hormone imbalance: Deficiency of 21 hydroxylase enzyme results in reduced synthesis of gluco- and mineralo- corticoids and excess production of male sex hormones. There is not way to "fight" the disease, but it can be treated with glucocorticoids, e.g., predinisolone. The defect causes virilization in girls an pre-mature puberty in boys. ...Read more

Can my heterozygotes status of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (21-Hydrolaxe deficiency, salt-wasting) explain hirsurtism & symptoms like polydipsia?

Can my heterozygotes status of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (21-Hydrolaxe deficiency, salt-wasting) explain hirsurtism & symptoms like polydipsia?

Maybe: Hydroxylase deficiency is actually a continuum, and there are many alleles. A workup is probably not worthwhile. Manage unwanted body hair with electrolysis or lasers -- you're doing yourself a favor. If your urinalysis (chemical, sediment), renal functions (BUN, creatinine) and concentrating ability (SG >1.020) while thirsty) are normal, I would not recommend further studies. ...Read more

What sort of disease is congenital adrenal hyperplasia?

What sort of disease is congenital adrenal hyperplasia?

Missing enzyme: There are different types. They all involve a deficiency of an enzyme needed in cortisol production. Since the pituitary senses there isn't enough cortisol, it keeps trying to make the adrenals make cortisol. But because that enzyme is missing, the building blocks of cortisol build up. These substances get turned into androgens - male hormones - and cause abnormalities in sexual development. ...Read more

The test to distinguish the two is a baseline and acth stimulated 17-oh progesterone. An endocrinologist is needed for this situation. ...Read more

Can you tell me what is congenital adrenal hyperplasia in simple words?
