Sensitive Estradiol Test

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone had sensitive estradiol test done? Do we even have this in NZ?

The f*ck is "sensitive" estradiol? If you mean testing estradiol levels (e2) you can just walk in to the lab and ask for it to be done. It costs around 20 something bucks + collection fee from memory..

According to my literature serum/plasma must be separated from cells within 45 minutes of venipuncture, this is generally not done at my local lab..

Standard E2 testing can be out of range by as much as 10 times (higher) the correct value shown on sensitive oestradiol, causing unnecessary use of AI's...

Oh cool LOL. Wow though, that makes me wonder why you'd even bother with the regular one if it's that inaccurate. I'm guessing it still serves a purpose though?

Normal E2 test is not accurate. It just gives a rough idea but it could be 20 times to your actual levels and you will end up taking arimidex for no reason and you'll crash. Sensitive E2 test gives you your actual estradiol reading.

I'm curious to know the answer to this, too.

 

Is the normal E2 test okay for females (presumably the usual candidates for the test) because they have so much more E2, therefore the level of precision is less important? But because guys have less, any variance proportionately makes a much bigger difference?
