... Anyone with Addison's like your son should be taking DHEA as well because once the adrenals are shut down by taking replacement cortisol this important hormone is also cut off. DHEA is related to immune function, lung function, exercise capacity and sexuality. DHEA is always high in young people so his levels should have been quite high. Make sure you get a brand of DHEA...

But both doctors just keep telling me I drink too much! ... (4 replies)
