Why is this test important? Hormones are a chemical substance secreted by one tissue and traveling to another to affect other tissues in your body. They act as chemical messengers. Maintaining proper balance of these important "messengers" is key to optimal health. These sex hormones are involved in the growth, maintenance, and repair of reproductive tissues. But that's not all. They influence other body tissues and bone mass as well.
Estrone is one of the three estrogens, which also include estriol and estradiol. Estrone is produced primarily from androstenedione originating from the gonads or the adrenal cortex. Estrone is relevant to health and disease states because of its conversion to estrone sulfate, a long-lived derivative. Estrone sulfate acts as a reservoir that can be converted as needed to the more active estradiol.
