DHEA Supplemenation; does it increase production?

Answered on August 19, 2014

If anyone has taken this supplementation and had test before and after or if you can find a study/article on this; can supplementation for a temporary amount of time help the adrenals start producing it?

My DHEA-s levels are 166 which is low for a 21 yr old Male; my testosterone is fine.

My rheumatologist wants me to start taking this, but obviously I don't want to take something for life, but if it helps my adrenals by giving them a kick start I'm all for it.

Does Supplementation help increase production after temporary use?

yeah, i take it every morning. my plan is to keep taking it, as long levels stay in the optimal range-- if it gets high, i'll back off. i test my blood every 6 months, so i'll use that to gauge.

So you take it everyday? Do you go weeks on weeks off? Do you plan on reducing your dose?

For me, it seemed to work for me. I started DHEA supplementation (vitamin shoppe brand) in June, when i found my DHEA-s level to be 161 ug/dl (low, and im 41 years old.) After 6 months of taking it, my December test just came in at 298 ug/dl. I only take 25mg a day, once in the morning.

I use WellnessFX every 6 months to watch my numbers.

BE CAREFUL! Are you working with a doctor? Excessive reproductive hormones convert to estrogen. You don't want that... side effects can be irreversible.
