It is also used for diagnosing CAH in older children and adults who may have a milder, "late-onset" form. It also helps in monitoring treatment response in patiwnt with 21-hydroxylase deficiency. An ACTH stimulation test is done as a follow-up test to assess response to treatment in patients of CAH.
