In an old thread titled “Very High Estrogen But I Feel Great”, @alldayeveryday posted the “commonly discussed” T/E Ratio calculation. Rather than bump a 6 year old thread, I will start new.
And yes, it is a rambling thread, as it presents multiple ways to view the same thing. Yet, I don’t know which one is correct – or whether they are all correct.
I have also read about the ratio method that was pasted above, yet I have never found a legitimate medical source to confirm the methodology.
I found one online calculator that presents the T/E ratio in a completely different fashion … and makes the statement that both numbers must be the same units to perform the calculation:
before the calculation of testosterone to estradiol ratio, both hormone concentrations need to be expressed in the same units,
Right now, I have pseudo high Estrogen and feel fantastic. When I began my journey, I had Estrogen “not measurable”.
If I use the commonly discussed method on these boards, my ratio is 20 and I’m in range.
When I use the online calculator, I’m at 194 and I have NO CLUE what that means.
I found another reference on a medical journal that confuses me further. I don’t know what is meant – 5% of what??
The Total Testosterone:Estradiol ratio needs to be kept below 5%.
I also found an interesting article that lends some credence to what I feel.
In another thread, a poster quoted Nelson Vergel.
In my instance, my ultimate range using this method is: 72-102
For this calculation, I was using TT of 1435 ng/dL, and 69.8 pg/ml.
Do any of you know any posted medical studies on T/E ratios?
