Low Dhea Level Infertility
I recently started taking 75mg a day DHEA for infertility. This month my period was 11 days early? Am I taking too much? What happened?
Did you tell Doc?: DHEA should always be taken under the supervision of a physician, as the hormone can interact with some prescription drugs and affect some medical conditions like diabetes, mood disorders, and estrogen-sensitive cancers. If you haven't told him/her yet, tell them now. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

DHEA: Concentrations of dhea are measured, along with other hormones such as fsh, lh, prolactin, estrogen, and testosterone, to help diagnose polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) and to help rule out other causes of infertility, amenorrhea, hirsutism, and forms of adrenal dysfunction. Have no idea without further data and exam as to what your levels mean. ...Read more

TMJ: Headache and migraine are consistent with a TMJ disorder. Many pts go undiagnosed and the many times will present taking the same meds. Since you have most likely ruled out a brain tumor with the MRI and all other test are normal, I would suggest seeing a dentist specially trained who treats TMJ disorders and craniofacial pain. Most of the pts present with ANS disorders and adrenal issues. ...Read more
I am a 37 year old generally healthy male yet my DHEA S serum hormone level is always low at 75 normal (120 to 450) What might this indicate?
Unneeded testing: If you're healthy then I don't understand why you're getting these hormone tests. Abnormal lab tests in people who are well have a high likelihood of being false positives. There is no good reason to be checking a test like this if you're feeling well, no matter what the result is. ...Read more
DHEA levels: Dhea is not a reliable measure of adrenal function independent of acth stimulation test where it's compared to other hormone levels before and after stimulation. If an adrenal tumor is of concern, a random dhea is unhelpful. If you have concerns regarding adrenal function or adrenal tumor, please consider consulting with an endocrinologist. ...Read more

I have elevated dhea levels (345) and low estrogen, I am 31 years old and do not have any tumors. Could birth control help balance this out?
If you mean DHEAS: Your level is normal. Why are you taking DHEA? It's metabolized to either cortisone, estrogen or testosterone and you can't control which one. Also, most of the DHEA pills don't really have much DHEA in them. You haven't provided enough facts to really tell you anything, Birth control isn't really used to "balance" anything WHy are you on estrogen and also BCP's? Talk w/your doctor, ...Read more

Is it generally safe to take dhea. I bought them as I had low energy level and fatigue associated with anxiety. Is it a safe supplement?
Nope: Dhea is converted to cortisone, testosterone and estrogen - and you have not control as to which or how much. Also, most of the dhea supplements don't have much dhea in them, and who know what else is in there. You don't even know why you're taking them or how to measure your response. Is it worth playing russian roulette with your health. Don't get medical info from tv, friends and the internet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes low blood level of dhea. I'm 25 female. Adrenal tumor maybe? I have high estrogen and chronic fatigue, body pain etc...
See endocrinologist: Dhea isn't a hormone we typically measure at random because it isn't as reliable as the longer 1/2 life of dheas. Likewise, we usually don't measure total estrogen as it isn't helpful. Dhea is most reliable when compared before and after IV acth during stim testing around other hormones. Adrenal insufficiency can't be identified with a random dhea. ...Read more
