I was reading about Aromatase Excess Syndrome and I found out that a man can produce large amounts of estrogen if they have this condition but I want to know if he could produce more estrogen than a health young woman does. I searched that in a health young woman estrogen levels range from 30 pg/ml to 400 pg/ml.

I did a math: Let's say a man has 500 ng/dl of testosterone which is 5 ng/ml since 1 dl is 100 ml. If his body produce high amounts of aromatase that converts 10% of his testosterone into estrogen and 1 nanogram is 1000 picograms then 10 % of 5 ng is 500 pg/ml. He will produce more estrogen than a woman according to my search.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to the site. It sounds like you have answered your own question. The thing to find out would be is the 10% conversion and your other values are realistic values. I personally have no idea about the answer, but just wanted to make this comment. $\endgroup$
