How do men produce estrogen?

My husband just did a ton of blood work and it came back that he has high estrogen levels.


Answer by  SashaDarkCloud (5764)

When we begin life, we all start out as a girl. Though through the magic of DNA, we either become male or female. So the human body produces both estrogen and testosterone. Though females develop more estrogen than testosterone. And vice versa. Though sometimes, some people can develop more of a certain hormone. Or he might have some condition.

All normally functioning men produce some level of estrogen, though on a much smaller scale than women. In men, small levels of estrogen are produced in the testes, but can also be produced in the liver, adrenal glands, and fat cells. It has been shown that excess fat can lead to raised estrogen levels in men.

A man, especially as he ages, will convert more of his testosterone to estrogen through the aromatase reaction. The aromatase reaction involves fat cells, which alter testosterone into estrogen. The larger that the fat cells are, the more conversion will take place, and the resulting estrogen level will be higher overall.

Men produce estrogen and progestrogen in the adrenal glands. It is a vital hormone for men and women. When a man has to much estrogen in his body it could men he has a health condition which could be prostate cancer or prostate enlargment. Since his estrogen levels are high, the doctor will more than likely check for this.

Both men and women naturally produce levels of estrogen and testosterone, and some men and women are just a little off balance from the norm; it's not that strange really.
