    E2 test results
    My results for E2 came in this AM from Kaiser...they are

    Component Your result Standard range Units
    Estradiol <50 < 50 pg/mL

    Tried to pin down my Endo to see exactly what my numbers are.
    Here is his responce.

    The routine estradiol assay done at Kaiser is sensitive down to a level of 50 pg/ml. A level under 50 pg/ml is considered normal for adult males.in this assay. Your level is < 50 pg/ml, so within the normal range. It isn't necessary to know if it's 35 or 25 because a treatment intervention wouldn't be made based on this information. Your testosterone level is still pending.
    WTF

    Like there is no difference between .3 and 49.9. Labcorp, under 50 bucks for all the needed results. Versus 15-30 with insurance and dealing with that bs.

    Simple: You got the female panel done. It isn't sensitive enough to give you a valid reading at those low levels. It is cheaper to run than the sensitive male assay (I believe). Your doc should have ensured that you got the sensitive one done - this is pretty much useless to you. The doc is happy - he got you tested. The lab is happy - they got paid. You aren't happy as you got screwed around by the medical profession - that's not unusual. It's OK to have that happen once - don't let it happen again.

    If you can imagine a bell curve representing female E levels - you're way over in the flat bit on the left.

    Another way to imagine it is to measure sound levels - the noise of a falling leaf compared to a falling feather could be measured- if you used a sensitive test. Similarly the noise of a fighter jet compared to a bizjet. Just don't mix the measuring techniques.

    Thanks BF... I will see what my free and total T is and move on from there.
    This is the second goround with this Endo on my T levels, The first time I tested I did my blood work in the PM and it came back in the 155ish range so he wants to test with a AM blood draw.
    Im sure I`ll need to move on to another Doc for TRT.
    I will post new results when they come in. I could use a recommendation for a Doc in Sacramento area.
    Thanks
