This test helps assess the reproductive health of females and males.
Estrone (E1), also called Oestrone, is a main type of estrogen formed from cholesterol. It is primarily secreted by the gonads.
In girls, E1 affects the development of sex organs, and it also influences menstrual cycles. In women, it has an impact on fertility and menopause.
In boys, E1 influences puberty, which involves the growth of sex organs, growth of body hair, development of muscle mass, and deepening of the voice. In men, its abnormal presence can result in enlarged breasts and other signs of feminization.
Excessive estrone may be due to tumors in the reproductive system or adrenal glands, or it can be because of hyperthyroidism, cirrhosis, or certain other disorders.
Why Take the E1 Test?
The E1 test helps identify and resolve reproductive issues in women, who have irregular periods, and it also assesses conditions associated with delayed puberty in boys and testosterone deficiency in men.
Turnaround time: Estrone test results arrive within three (3) business days.
