Part Descriptions

LP15528-0   Dehydroepiandrosterone
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), is a natural steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, the gonads, adipose tissue and the brain. DHEA is the precursor of androstenedione, testosterone and estrogen. It is the most abundant hormone in humans. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP32035-5   Creatinine
Creatinine or creatine anhydride, is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle. The loss of water molecule from creatine results in the formation of creatinine. It is transferred to the kidneys by blood plasma, whereupon it is eliminated by glomular filtration and partial tubular excretion. Creatinine is usually produced at a fairly constant rate and measuring its serum level is a simple test. A rise in blood creatinine levels is observed only with marked damage to functioning nephrons; therefore this test is not suitable for detecting early kidney disease. Creatine and creatinine are metabolized in the kidneys, muscle, liver and pancreas.
