This question often comes up; What is my Ideal estrogen level?
Firstly it is important to remember that we all have different levels of estrogen based on many factors however we never want estrogen levels to be too low or too high, like everything balance is required for optimal health and hormone production.
A 3 year study was conducted at the Center for Heart Disease, Cardiology Department in Poland. The study was later published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This study consisted of 501 males to examine the relationship between serum concentration of estradiol and mortality rates in men with chronic heart failure (HF) and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF).
Of the 501 men in the study 171 (34%) deaths occurred during the 3 year study period.
It was found men with low estrogen levels were 317% more likely to die during the 3 year follow up, while men with high estrogen levels were 133% more likely to die. 1.
- The men with balanced estrogen levels had the fewest deaths their estrogen levels were between 21.80 and 30.11 pg/mL or (80.02 and 110.53 pmol/L).
- The men with the highest estrogen levels suffered a 133% increased death rates with serum estrogen levels of 37.40 pg/mL (137.29 pmol/l) or above.
- The lowest estrogen group that suffered a 317% increased death rate had serum estrogen levels under 12.90 pg/mL (47.35 pmol/L).
The dramatic increase in mortality in men with unbalanced estrogen (i.e., estradiol levels either too high or too low) is nothing short of astounding. It uncovers a gaping hole in conventional cardiology practice that is easily correctable.
This study revealing the lethal dangers of estrogen imbalance was published in conventional medicine’s Journal of the American Medical Association.
