In brief: Uncertain at most

If levels of dhea decline with age, can replacing the hormone reverse aging in humans? Nobody knows for sure.
In studies, laboratory animals given dhea supplements live up to 50 percent longer than normal. But we humans metabolize dhea differently than animals, so these results don't necessarily apply to us. http://www.anti-agingmd.com/dhea.html#top.
