Borderline high: Since your estradiol level was normal, one can't be sure of the significance of a slightly elevated estrone level although one study suggested that it may be a precursor of type 2 diabetes in men. ?of whether it would affect libido or erectile dysfunction. An endocrinologist is best qualified to answer your question,however. Perhaps repeating the test is worthwhile.
