Adrenal & Hormone Profile
Adrenal & Hormone Profile analytes: adrenal and hormone reports, Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol (E3), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T), DHEA (D), Cortisol (Cx4).
The Adrenal & Hormone Profile includes adrenal and hormone reports. Estrone (E1) and estriol (E3) plus the Estrogen Quotient. Estrogen Quotient (EQ) is a simple ratio of the cancer protective E3 to the proliferative estrogens E1 and E2. The EQ provides an assessment of breast cancer risk, with a lower number (<1.0) indicating increased risk, and a higher number (>1.0) signifying a lower risk. For maximum protection, an optimal EQ is >1.5. Because the research on the Estrogen Quotient and the protective properties of estriol has not been completed with men, this profile is a consideration for women only. This profile should be considered for patients who have: increased risk of developing breast cancer, history of breast cancer or other hormonally sensitive cancers, personal or family history of autoimmune disease, PCOS.
