Yes interesting.  Older men with low bone density without diurnal variation also had about twice as much SHBG.  Maybe the higher SHBG was sucking up enough E2 that the variation got lost in the low levels (methodology sensitivity  etc.).

My BMD is down although my E2 levels are most always good at about 18 to 28.  Although I have never done a diurnal study on E2.  My SHBG levels are consistently high, maybe that is the issue.

One of those studies also said that high SHBG was an independent risk factor for osteoporosis.  Maybe not so independent ???

A free estradiol test is something to consider. Alternatively, there are some indications that the free estradiol spreadsheet discussed here produces reasonable values. I think the reference range is something like 0.3-1.5 pg/mL.
