The Estrogen Elite dried urine profile is an assessment to consider for anyone with a personal or family history of estrogen-dependent cancer (e.g., breast cancer), patients with symptoms of estrogen/progesterone imbalance, men with prostate cancer risk, or patients who want to assess their exposure to BPA.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is found mostly in plastics. This type of plastic is usually clear and shatter-proof e.g. water bottles. Other uses of BPA consist of epoxy resins, which are used to coat the inside of food and beverage cans. BPA toxicity may potentially lead to endocrine disruption which weakly bind to estrogen receptors that can affect the endocrine, nervous, and immune system as well as block thyroid hormone action.
By using a simple dried urine collection, the estrogen elite dried urine hormone profile evaluates important hormones that can profoundly affect your hormone health and wellbeing.
