The most important estrogen is estradiol in both men and women. In men elevated estradiol levels and associated metabolic disorders have been implicated in the development of common diseases including cardiovascular disorders, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus, as increased estradiol associated with decreased testosterone levels increases the risk of these diseases. In this review the authors summarize the causes and consequences of androgen deficiency and estradiol excess, and they review recent studies on potential therapeutic strategies to correct increased estradiol levels in men.
