Alpha Subunits in Renal Failure


Question

Are apha subunit results elevated in premenop a usal women with renal failure?Thank you for your reply.Dr MG Endocrinologist, Australia

Response

They are extremely elevated since they come from hypersecretion of both gonadotropins as well as from already elevated alpha-subunit concentration that are usually found in renal failure. Paolo Beck-Peccoz, M.D.
