The Estrogen Metabolism Plus is clinically useful as estrogen metabolites provide valuable clinical information regarding cancer risk. Two significant metabolites that can be accurately assessed are 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone (16 alpha-OHE1) and2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE1).
16 alpha-OHE1 is a powerful metabolite that stimulates target tissues. Levels can rise in response to obesity, alcohol consumption, and toxic exposure. High levels of this potent metabolite are linked to increased risk and poorer prognosis in conditions linked to estrogen excess such as breast cancer and lupus.

Common Conditions:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Heart Disease
  • Autoimmune disorders
