Interpreting Estrogen Metabolites


Presenter: Allison Smith, ND

Date: April 25, 2016

Join Dr. Allison Smith for a discussion on how to interpret the estrogen part of the ZRT urine metabolites panel – line by line.

Discussion will include:

  • High E2 tissue exposure as an independent risk factor for breast cancer
  • Using the estrogen quotient to assess risk
  • Estrogens are moved through several different pathways or cytochrome systems to find their natural exit from the body
  • Learn more about these cytochrome systems
  • The 2/16 ratio
  • Learn how we assess methylation by looking at patterns and levels of these products in the urine
  • BPA's estrogenic potential
