Estrogen metabolism/DIM supplement

I had an extensive urine study done. My estrogen level is low but my estrogen metabolism ratio shows too much of the bad (16a-OHE1). So my body does not metabolize estrogen in the right way. I am on compounded bioidentical Biest/testosterone and progesterone. Has anyone heard of the DIM supplement. Wondering what I should be doing to balance my ratio.

Re: Estrogen metabolism/DIM supplement

There is an estrogen metabolism test, it shows if you are at risk for certain cancers. You want the ratio to be balanced. I have a low estrogen level but my body is not metabolizing the estrogen replacement correctly. My doc did a complete hormone test through Genova Diagnostics. I have several other issues, so we are working to fix things so that I can be more balanced. She didn't recommend the DIM which can balance the estrogen metabolism. I was just wondering if anyone has heard of DIM. Also, I believe that taking flaxseed can help too.
