Measures estrogen hormone levels in postmenopausal women. Also tests for men/women who might have cancer in ovaries/testicles in their adrenal glands.
Estrone(E1) is a naturally occurring weak estrogenic hormone secreted by the ovary and adrenal glands in females and by the testes in males. Generally the most heavily secreted and active estrogen, Estradiol is converted to estrone when it enters the bloodstream. During pregnancy, it is produced in smaller amounts while after menopause; adrenal estrone becomes the major circulating estrogen. Estrone levels are also associated with obesity. Lastly, it is one of the three major estrogens that are predominantly involved in the maintenance of the female reproductive system and secondary sexual characteristics.
An abnormal level of Estrone can manifest in both your behavior and physical attributes. Below are some of the common signs and symptoms of Estrone hormone imbalance. If you happen to experience any of them and want to know if they have anything to do with high or low levels of your Estrone hormone, then measuring your Estrone hormone levels would be a good thing to do. This saliva Estrone hormone imbalance testing kit can help you assessing if your Estrone levels are within the expected optimal range. Additionally, it may prove very helpful to you and your physician in making an accurate and conclusive diagnosis.
