However, all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

No concern: DHEA levels vary widely in individuals, as well as throughout the day. Levels are normally higher in men compared to women. It is a precursor hormone made by the adrenal glands. Unless there was a particular concern related to your adrenal glands, it should not have been measured, and certainly should not be a part of a "routine" lab screen. ...Read more
