E2 Levels: Blood vs. Saliva


#1

My blood E2 levels were just just over the normal range (high) for my blood test, and then 2 or 3 days later were on the very low end of normal on a saliva test. What do you make of this?


#2

what was the test name? Quest sensitive?


#3

Blood was through Lab Corp and saliva through Biohealth Diagnotics. All that it says on the test is Estradiol 6 (E2) on the blood test results.


#4

The problem with saliva tests is that most here have no idea what the numbers mean.

So tell us what E2 symptoms you have.

Lab results can be bogus too.


#5

Male / Female ranges?


#6

We have good results using labcorp E2 data with a few exceptions of false very low numbers. If you are high on labcorp E2, you really need to take some action.
