White Paper from the Former Estrogen Gene Test Co.
Estrogen Gene Testing is used to identify polymorphisms in all of the key estrogen metabolism genes. It is a unique tool that can identify patients who inappropriately metabolize estrogen and related compounds. While every woman should have an Estrogen Gene Test performed at some point, the test is particularly important in women who are considering oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, bio-identical supplementation, in vitro fertilization, or who have been diagnosed with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. With this knowledge in hand, clinicians can mitigate breast cancer risk through targeted nutritional and lifestyle interventions.
