Description

DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone, is a sex hormone produced naturally in the body and converted to DHEA-S in the adrenal gland, which in turn helps produce other hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. DHEA levels in the body can vary throughout the day while your levels of DHEA-S do not change.

The hormone is often called the "age hormone", as it has previously been associated with anti-aging properties. Natural DHEA levels peak in early adulthood and then slowly fall as you age.

Your sex drive, sleep, stress and weight management can be affected by your levels of DHEA-S. Do you have e.g. experienced that you have had a reduced sex drive, a lack of DHEA-S may be the reason. Since estrogen and testosterone (which is produced with the help of DHEA) work together to increase libido and encourage us to desire sex, it is important that DHEA levels are as they should be for an increased or restored sex drive.

Sleep disorders are often associated with high levels of DHEA-S, and if you live under stress, the balance between DHEA, testosterone and cortisol may be the reason why you experience high levels of both physical and mental stress.

This is how it works: The test is a capillary test which is performed with a prick in the finger.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 15 working days after our lab receives your sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test answer, you will receive a report in English about your values.

Information

About DHEA and DHEA-S

DHEA is a hormone that is changed to DHEA-S in your adrenal glands and liver. DHEA levels can be lower at different times of the day. But your DHEA-S levels do not change during the day.

Symptoms of high levels of DHEA-S

By measuring your levels of DHEA-S, you can get answers to why you have symptoms such as acne, missed periods, a lot of facial hair growth at high levels of DHEA-S if you are a woman. Men do not always experience symptoms at high levels of DHEA-S.

Symptoms of low levels of DHEA-S

At low levels of DHEA-S, symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, reduced sex drive, diabetes and fatigue may occur.
