    Estrogen testing from genova


    I was on the phone with genova and the rep told me that if your know what tests you need they can customize your test for those specifics. They charged me $829 for tests which I only neeed to have where 160 bucks (estrogen metabolites and methylated ) So even if they have groups of tests you call and get a price list before you take any tests and only designate the ones you want and it will save alot of money. Next time my test is only going to gots 160 and with insurance may be like 40 bucks to checkl estrogen metabolites

    They said that this can be done with any tests..

    Good job.
    Please make specific list of tests that are reasonable for your situation (and many of us).
    Post that list here.
    Post any relevant links to Genova web site.
    ----------------------
    Post any known relevant ICD-9 codes.


    On post #44
    Jan's BloodTest April13/2007

    starting with Estroessence and down
    I started on list from Genova,
    please make comments on that list.

    When that list is more or less complete I plan on making separate post of it on my thread.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    IIRC from previous discussion,
    except for hair analysis (not really sure of this exception)
    Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) Hair Analysis
    all urine analysis should be done at Genova
    all blood analysis at Quest.
    ---
    Saliva (I guess) testing is good for Cortisol only and can also be done at Genova.

    HAN, how do you order these yourself? I thought it had to be ordered by a doctor. I brought in a printout of the genova tests that I wanted (metabolic profile and cellular energy) and he agreed, then called me back a day later and said he refused to do it. He's a prick. If there is a way I can order them myself let me know.

    No you need a drs to order genovia, but you can specifically pic on.
    I use great plains laboratory for organic acids testing. no dr is needed for as I know. If you have chiropractor they can also order it as well..
    I use genova for estrogens because i can pick and chose proper tests these have to be ordered by your physican

    That does not compute.

    Total Estrogens=Estradiol + Estrone + Estriol =E2 + E1 +E3 (and estetrol(E4).

    Looking at the chart (attached to my previous post)
    DIM reduces Estrone and Estriol

    What is left is Estradiol.

    Estradiol nill very low, not detected (1.5-6)
    estrial 19.55 (3-28.5)
    2/16 hydroxy estrone .71 (.60-7.53 ) SUCKS ASS !!
    16 hydroxestrone 1.85 (.26-2.33)
    2 hydroxestrone 1.31 (.16-7.69) very low
    2-Methoxyestrone <detectable (0.15-4.53)
    4-hydroxyestrone high=2.09(0.27-0.99)

    4-Methoxyestrone/4-hydroxyestrone ratio not detected (0.81-1.62)
    Triodothyronine, T3 very high =10395(1310-5312)
    DHEA <DL
    Human growth hormone 24 (15-59)
    Not really sure on how to look at urine tests.
    Well it still should be in the range.

    Testosterone high = 0.65(<=0.53) so you are pissing out too much T

    Estradiol nill very low, not detected (1.5-6)-- you are not clearing out E2, soon you will have it high in the blood.
    First do the supplements below, but keep eye on blood FreeE2, have Liquidex in case you need it.

    4-hydroxyestrone high=2.09(0.27-0.99), 4-OH Estrone, that is cause for cancer, increase cruciferous.

    2 hydroxestrone 1.31 (.16-7.69) very low , get more of it, it is protective

    2-Methoxyestrone <detectable (0.15-4.53), it is protective, get some of it

    16 hydroxestrone 1.85 (.26-2.33), it is close to high range, it is carcinogenic

    2/16 hydroxy estrone .71 (.60-7.53 ) SUCKS ASS !!
    no wonder, low 2 and high 16.

    ============================== ===========================

    After I finish DualAction I plan on using only Breast Health.
    Dual-Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract With Resveratrol & Cat's Claw
    60 vegetarian capsules
    Item Catalog Number: 969
    Dual-Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract With Resveratrol & Cat's Claw, 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    Also

    TMG
    500 mg, 180 tablets

    and
    4 pills

    Good points I ran out of reservatrol need to get some more

    Get more of 2 - methylestrone = fuked methylations which I have none from the start but could never prove it. Sam-e is a direct methylator as well as methycoblalinin and folonic acid, TMG can steal from the methione synthase pathway which is already underfunctioinng for what ever reason (probably estrogen imbalances)

    FYI do not take iodine all at same time talked to dr flechas and told me iodine half life is 8 hours so its best to take breakfast and mid afternoon. This could explain why 4 pm I am ready for a nap thinking it was my blood sugar. I learned the hard way trying to take iodine supplements all at once in the morning back fired big time.

    I have pretty much all the ingredients in there but i need 50 mgs of iodine a day for another 3-4 months till i hit saturation. Since swtiching back to iodine 2 times a day it makes a huge difference in energy levels

    I told you about the iodine (or at least to get back on that horse). I think its a missing ingredient for A LOT OF us....im just wondering why its taking me so freakin long to reach any decent level of saturation. Im on at LEAST 50 mg (abraham and brownstein like up to 100mg for some of us) and I still paint some on just to make sure im absorbing in two diff ways.

    at least now, it takes longer than an hour or two to absorb when i paint it on....but it still is pretty much gone in less than 12 hours.

    Estrogen imbalnces will interfer with iodine uptake as well as copper is needed to metabolise iodine
    Transport mechanism refered to NSCI or something like that is not working properly.

    Its the NIH (i think) transport system...I think mine got screwed from certain supps and other sundries. Any way to check copper deficiencies and stuff...I do take a lot of zinc.

    Estrodial increases ceruoplasm and copper metabolism adn can offset ferritin levels as well. Not enough bio e2 will cause an copper deficeincy resulting in lack of iron transport to ferrtin
