Question on DHEA-s
May 10, 2008
... I saw a thread on the thyroid board http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?p=3554427&highlight=dhea-s#post3554427 where there are comments on DHEAS. I wondered about my recent serum DHEA-s lab DHEA-s 40 (32-240) I have been trying to read around on it, and know that it is definately low for my age (just 42), and that it correlates with low levels...

... It could be that you are cyclical - so one test is simply not adequate. I am not a fan of trials on steroids from my experience though, as that just shuts down the adrenals and sometimes they never recover and then you are pretty much stuck on steroids the rest of your life. It is hard to manage your life on steroids - I have to do it daily. DHEA is an over the counter... (7 replies)

... me back as high and the cortisol tests which were normal. I am not sure what is optimal for cortisol testing and thus am looking into it.

... Diane, Sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. My endo also recommended that I take DHEA, but with my Cortef and pregnenolone. I also like you, am afraid to take it. I asked him is it would make my hair fall out and grow hair on my face, and the only reply I got was "not any worse than the cortef will" that was not encouraging! I read that if you are going to take it you... (10 replies)

DHEA problems?
Nov 17, 2005
... No, I decided not to have the ACTH test done. I saw two other doctors -- an MD and a DO for 2nd and 3rd opinions. They both separately agreed that this test would confirm what we already know from the saliva test, that I have adrenal exhaustion. I am on several supplements, including glandular, ginseng, DHEA, magnesium, fish oil, multi-vitamin. I've been going to bed... (20 replies)
