Limited use: Dhea is a steroid hormone manufactured by adrenal glands. It is involved in many processes. What growth are you wondering about - fetal development or muscle building? Consider reading this article - http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/dhea/ns_patient-dhea.

No: Made in the ovary and adrenal it is is not a growth hormone. Addisonians with primary ovarian failure still reach good heights when their other hormones are adequatly replaced. Dhea supplements do not increase height either.
