Re: Dhea level high
Jan 20, 2006
[QUOTE=orion]Elevated cortisol and DHEA are a sign of Cushing's disease. Other symptoms may include easy brusing, hypertension, low sex drive (low testosterone), anxiety, depression, general weakness, and weight gain.

When combined with thyroid problems you have to be more careful of your interpretation of symptoms because TSH and cortisol interact. For instance you may have weight loss rather than gain.[/QUOTE]
You know I was wondering about cushings after doing some research.I have all that above you have mentioned except hypertension blood pressure is normal and I do not bruise easily plus i have low sugar..Could cortisol levels throw off the thyroid?
Also before I had these test done..Ok on the cortisol levels through blood which i didnt post but here they are 14.5 AM ranges 5-25, PM 15.5 ranges 1.20 - 12.0 I had a panic attack before I went in for the PM lab, Now on the saliva test I had them done 8 months after a major surgery rod and 2 screws inserted in the tib and fib bc of a car wreck i was in, snapped my bones in half..So now i dont know if these things can impack the levels are not..thank you for your time.
