Julie, do you consume soy-based products that could boost your levels? Likely you still have some ovarian output of estrogen that factors into your levels.
Good question. I don't eat soy because of GMO concerns. Re. ovarian output of estrogen; I'm guessing that's most likely the real culprit here. Perhaps my own levels could have diminished causing the huge drop
At 62, my doctor refuses to even measure my levels, since he will not respond by altering the ultra-low dose. I don't think we know what level is considered optimal for women in their 60s.
I fully agree. I don't think we know what level is considered optimal for any post-menopausal woman. I've been shooting to stay low (around 50 pg/mL) because of concerns that it could interfere with my ability to reach mild ketosis, but not THIS low
