DHEA-S is a steroid hormone that is formed in the adrenal cortex and is essential for the production of other hormones in the body, including sex hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. Low levels of DHEA-S can indicate problems with the adrenal cortex, stress or aging, while high levels can be an indication of serious diseases.

By measuring your DHEA-S levels, you can gain insight into your values. Get answers to whether any symptoms may have underlying causes, order the DHEA-S health test.

Why should I test DHEA-S?

Testing DHEA-S levels is important for several reasons. First, it can help identify imbalances in hormone production that may be affecting your overall health. DHEA-S acts as a precursor to sex hormones, so its levels can affect everything from energy levels and mood to muscle strength and bone health. You can also gain deeper insight into your stress response as the balance between DHEA and cortisol is important for managing stress. DHEA has anti-stress and anti-inflammatory properties that can counteract the effects of cortisol, whereupon these markers can advantageously be analyzed simultaneously.

What affects DHEA-S in the body?

  • Energy levels: DHEA-S affects energy production in the body and low levels can lead to chronic fatigue and reduced vitality.
  • Immune system: As part of the adrenal hormones, DHEA-S plays a role in supporting the immune system and the body's ability to deal with stress.
  • Metabolism: DHEA-S is involved in regulating metabolism, which affects weight control and body composition.
  • Mood: Hormone levels can affect brain functions, including memory and mood. Low levels of DHEA-S have been linked to depression and cognitive impairment.
  • Bone health and muscle strength: DHEA-S is important for the maintenance of muscle mass and bone mineral density, which is essential for preventing osteoporosis and sarcopenia.

By monitoring your DHEA levels, you can detect hormonal imbalances early and take steps to improve your health and well-being. Order your DHEA-S health test today to gain a deeper understanding of your body and health.
