Clinical tool insights on estrogen physiology, functions, levels, and causes of dysregulation

Various lifestyle and environmental factors can influence estrogen production, metabolism, and balance. These include poor diet, obesity, excess alcohol consumption, certain medications, life stages (e.g., perimenopause), and overexposure to certain chemicals. Genetics are also at play.

  • The functions of estrogen in the body
  • Modifiable lifestyle factors that impact estrogen levels
