Approximately 80% of breast cancer occurs in women with little to no family history. Research has shown that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen, and unbalanced oestrogen metabolism, is a strong risk factor in the development of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer, as well as oestrogen dominant disorders, such as endometriosis and premenstrual syndrome.

Clinical value

Can be viewed as a ‘foundation to health’ test and is therefore appropriate for any individual seeking to improve their health outcomes, be it those who already suffer health complaints such as chronic fatigue, gut issues, cardiovascular disease, or insulin resistance, or those who are concerned about a family history of a chronic disease of lifestyle. The test is also valuable for those who would like to optimise health outcomes and refine their health routine with a targeted approach to diet, lifestyle and nutraceuticals
