17 Hydroxyprogesterone

What does a low 17 Hydroxyprogesterone mean?  My daughter's is 14.

Thanks,

I looked it up and it said:
"Low or decreasing concentrations in a person with CAH indicate a response to treatment. High or increasing levels may indicate that changes in treatment are required."

I am not sure what that means alone - or without a range, how low she was.
