Got Bloodwork, Estro Level Too High?


#1

I recently went for blood work regarding my estro and Test levels (due to libido problems) my resluts were: Test- 31.02nmol/L Estro- 116.22pmol/L

Is my estro too high? What would be the right estro level?

You are assuming that we memorize lab ranges.

With higher T levels, E2=22pg/ml 80 pmol/Lis a good target. If using anastrozole, increase dose by a factor of 116/80.

You have not tested free T, FT so we do not have any idea about how much T ios bound up in SHBG+T.

Thyroid function can also affect libido.
