Approximately 1,000 human patients, either male or female, also had high amounts of adrenal estrogen when examined by their physicians for a variety of different induced, chronic, inflammatory stomach diseases.Total estrogen MUST be evaluated for each patient, whether human or animal. A total estrogen test is offered to humans by Quest Laboratories, LabCorp and possibly other human laboratories.
The National Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is the only veterinary laboratory at the moment that offers a total estrogen test for animals. To determine the amount of estrogen that is producing the inner layer of the adrenal cortex, simply measure the amounts of E1, E2 and E3 and total estrogen.
In male and male animals, it measures only estradiol and total estrogen. In human and female animals, patients without ovaries or postmenopausal patients, their E1, E2, E3 and total estrogen can be measured at any time.
If human females are still menstruating, it is best to determine their E1, E2 and E3 and total estrogen at the time their ovaries are the most inactive, and tested once more when their ovaries are the most active .
The amounts of estrogen produced by each patient will help determine the difference between ovarian and adrenal estrogen.
