My DHEA is only high in my urine and saliva. The DHEA-S in my blood is in normal range, actually on the low side. What is the difference in the urine, saliva, and blood? Anyone know? I should say that my thyroid hormones are like that too.. T4 and T3 are double the top number of the referance range..

If you ask for opinions it's a good idea to actually include the facts.

I don't think T4 and T3 urine tests are considered useful because so many divergent things can affect them. Similarly it's only DHEA-S in the blood that counts, why do you think urine concentration is important.

What symptoms lead doctors to perform these unusual tests?
