About Dhea

What is dehydroepiandrosterone?

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It is made from cholesterol and is a precursor to female sex hormones, such as oestrogen and male sex hormones, such as testosterone. DHEA levels decrease with age, along with oestrogen and testosterone. DHEA supplements are sometimes taken to try and counteract the changes associated with decreases in these hormones but the majority of research remains inconclusive.

Why take the test?

This test measures the level of DHEA in the blood and can be used to understand if your DHEA levels are normal.
