Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

ESTRONE (E1)

CHILDREN*

1-14 days: Estrone levels in newborns are very elevated at birth but will fall to prepubertal levels within a few days.

Males

Tanner Stages#

Mean Age

Reference Range

Stage I (>14 days and prepubertal)

7.1 years

Undetectable-16 pg/mL

Stage II

11.5 years

Undetectable-22 pg/mL

Stage III

13.6 years

10-25 pg/mL

Stage IV

15.1 years

10-46 pg/mL

Stage V

18 years

10-60 pg/mL

#Puberty onset (transition from Tanner stage I to Tanner stage II) occurs for boys at a median age of 11.5 (+/- 2) years. For boys there is no proven relationship between puberty onset and body weight or ethnic origin. Progression through Tanner stages is variable. Tanner stage V (adult) should be reached by age 18.

Females

Tanner Stages#

Mean Age

Reference Range

Stage I (>14 days and prepubertal)

7.1 years

Undetectable-29 pg/mL

Stage II

10.5 years

10-33 pg/mL

Stage III

11.6 years

15-43 pg/mL

Stage IV

12.3 years

16-77 pg/mL

Stage V

14.5 years

17-200 pg/mL

#Puberty onset (transition from Tanner stage I to Tanner stage II) occurs for girls at a median age of 10.5 (+/- 2) years. There is evidence that it may occur up to 1 year earlier in obese girls and in African American girls. Progression through Tanner stages is variable. Tanner stage V (adult) should be reached by age 18.

*The reference ranges for children are based on the published literature(1,2), cross-correlation of our assay with assays used to generate the literature data and on our data for young adults.

ADULTS

Males: 10-60 pg/mL

Females

Premenopausal: 17-200 pg/mL

Postmenopausal: 7-40 pg/mL

Conversion factor
