Understanding Catecholamines Plasma in Bhubaneswar

What is Catecholamines Plasma in Bhubaneswar?

The catecholamines plasma test is a serological (blood) test conducted to calculate the catecholamines level in the blood. Catecholamines are hormones produced by the adrenal glands and are released into the blood when an individual is under physical or emotional stress. This test measures two hormones namely norepinephrine, and epinephrine (also called adrenaline). It is conducted to diagnose adrenal gland tumors and it can also be conducted in children to diagnose neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nerves, that most often affects adrenal glands and is common in children. The catecholamines plasma test can also be performed to monitor treatment response in those undergoing treatment.

In this test, a simple blood sample is taken, and the sample is sent for diagnosis. It is advised not to eat 6-12 hours before the test. High levels of catecholamines in the blood indicate tumors on the adrenaline gland, and the doctor will accordingly plan the future course of treatment.
