1 doctor agrees

In brief: Maybe yes

Women or girls with elevated dhea levels may have a hormonal problem that causes symptoms such as weight gain, increased body hair, acne, irregular periods, etc.
.. A visit to the doctor for an evaluation and blood tests can tell if the hormones are out of balance.
