Can someone still have high estrogen (E2) levels even though they don't exhibit the normal symptoms like bloating, water retention, sore nipples, gyno, etc?
There are people with relatively low T and good E2 levels and good libido.
Decent level of DHT also helps.
Prolactin is probably next in line.
I do thise test at Quest to adjust my levels:
Estradiol, Free, LC/MS/MS (36169X)
Testosterone, Free, Bio/Total (LC/MS/MS)
Dihydrotestosterone, Free, Serum (36168X)
i suffered from low libido and erectile problems for some time now
i didnt get e2 measured or any estrogen for that part
since im 25 and highly ectomorph (skinny, no nipples and bloating and that estrogen ****)
could it still be i have high e2?
i have high test levels so maybe it gets converted to wrong stuff somehow?
maybe it can be related to food (don't eat soy btw)
I also found that doctors that I usually see are often clueless.
So far best I could do is test and try to interpret results of those tests.
Doctors often also have a poor record interpreting lab results, they go by official ranges and official policies.
That often is guided by some national policy of lowering health cost to insurance companies or interest of big pharma.
So it is up hill battle when someone have a problem to solve.
Another problem is that doctors are not trained in preventive medicine. They wait until it breaks then try to fix it.
I often post my favorite tests, they are here on post #44:
