A 38-year-old female asked:
does dhea supplementation cause weight gain/abdominal bloating and distention in women?

None: Clinical research by dr. Regelson in animals, showed that dhea promoted weight loss in overweight animals even when they ate their usual diet. Dr. Barrett-connor found that lower dhea levels in the blood were associated with increased body mass and impaired glucose tolerance.

DHEA: Is sold over the counter in US but in Europe it is by prescription. Please do not take DHEA w/out seeing your doctor and having your blood level lab tested. The dose is very important. Peace and good health.
