A recent study measured blood hormone levels in 149 patients who had a sudden cardiac arrest, comparing them with levels in 149 patients who had coronary artery disease but did not have sudden cardiac arrest.

The study's findings include:

Men who had sudden cardiac arrests had testosterone levels of 4.4 nanograms per milliliter (440 ng/dL or 15.3 nmol/L), compared to 5.4 nanograms per milliliter (550 ng/dL or 18 nmol/L) for men who did not have sudden cardiac arrest.

Men who had sudden cardiac arrest had estradiol levels of 68 picograms per milliliter, compared to 52 picograms per milliliter for men who did not have sudden cardiac arrest.

Women who had sudden cardiac arrest had estradiol levels of 54 picograms per milliliter, compared to 36 picograms per milliliter for the control group.
