    Which to believe? Quest Ultra E2 or Standard Quest E2?


    I have an ultra sensitive E2 test from Quest of 12 and a standard estradiol test of 71 with a range from 13-54. The ultra sensitive was taken about a week before the standard test. I am on 100 mg of T weekly.

    I haven't felt that great in the last couple of weeks. Easily fatigued, poor sleep at night, and achy joints but the question is do I have low E2 or high E2? I am taking no AI at the time. I'm not really sure how to proceed.

    Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks....

    I m sorry i don't have an answer but I just got results back from Quest and my ultrsensitive was 6! I was using arimidex .5 mg e3d with nettle root extract also. A lot of people don't like Quest that's for sure. At least not their ultrasensitive E2. I am going to slow way down on the AI and just try the Nettle Root Extract.

    13-54 range has been dropped in my area to <33
    I would go symptoms <12 is not low depending on where SHBG is at.
    71 seems more logical which may be concurrent with your symptoms.
