Anon,

Normal estradiol levels are generally between 25 and 75, but that TENDS to be in younger women who are undergoing fertility testing. Normal DHEA can range from 35-430, but again, that's in younger women.

Have you been in menopause for several years?

Are you on any hormone replacement therapy?

Do you still have your uterus and/or ovaries?

Are you having any symptoms that you are concerned about? Do you have other medical conditions?

Did you also have your progesterone tested, and if so, what was that result?

What did your doctor say about your estradiol and dHEA levels?

I ask these questions because hormones have to balance one another, and that is actually more important sometimes than the numbers themselves. If you'll let me know some more information, I can better help you.

In the meantime, here are a couple of pages that may help you:
