Urinary hormone analysis is applied to detect an altered steroid hormone metabolism, an elevated production of biogenic amines and to non-invasively determine the protein hormone human beta-choriogonadotropin indicating a pregnancy. Occasionally, these determinations need to be complemented by plasma- or serum hormone analysis. Clinical data including current drug therapy and urinary creatinine as reference are required to interpret any urine analysis. Diseases to be investigated by steroid hormone analysis are excess production of a typical or atypical mineralocorticoid active steroid hormones, the hormonal activity of adrenal or ovarian tumors, acne of unknown origin, hirsutism, a PCO-, an adrenogenital or a suspected Cushing syndrome. Biogenic amines should be determined in suspected secondary or refractory arterial hypertension, in case of pheochromocytoma- or paraganglioma-associated symptoms or if a serotonin-producing tumor is suspected. In children genetically determined diseases are the primary background to perform an analysis.
