This test indicates how oestrogen is monitored in both men and women. High levels of circulating oestrogens are proliferative and potentially dangerous, so it is important that they are broken down efficiently and effectively removed from the body. This test identifies which oestrogen metabolic pathway is being predominantly utilized (2 or 16). This test assesses whether the patient is metabolizing effectively and safely to reduce the likelihood of oestrogen-dependent cancers and osteoporosis.
This testing would be useful for patients that may be at high risk of oestrogen-dependent cancers or osteoporosis. The test requires a urine specimen from the first morning void (first urination after waking in the morning).
