Proper hormonal metabolism (the way your body metabolizes hormones) is extremely important for good health. This is especially true for estrogen. There is a known correlation between dysfunctional estrogen metabolism and the development of breast cancer in women, especially women with a family history of breast cancer. This test looks at the metabolic pathways of all the sex hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S, and many others, to reveal if they are being metabolized in such a way as to protect from breast cancer or to increase the chances of developing breast cancer.
This test is essential for any woman who has breast cancer, has had breast cancer, or has a family history of breast cancer. In addition, any woman struggling with estrogen-dominant symptoms such as endometriosis, fibroids, peri-menopause, menopause, or painful periods can benefit from this test.
