Test Code: 501049
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Estrone Sulfate Blood test

This test measures levels of Estrone Sulfate in the blood.  Estrone Sulfate is a steroid that acts as a hormone reservoir that the body can use for the production of estrogens such as Estrone and Estradiol.   Estrone sulfate levels are often elevated in the third trimester of pregnancies and in post-menopausal women.  Certain types of tumors contribute to the excess production of estrone sulfate which in turn causes elevated levels of estradiol in people with some forms of cancer.  People undergoing hormone replacement therapy are sometimes prescribed estrone sulfate.  

An estrone sulfate test is sometimes ordered to evaluate issues with fertility or to monitor treatment for some types of cancer.  

Turnaround for this test is typically 8-15 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
