MEDICATION: DHEA, Dehydroepiandrosterone

USE: DHEA is used for natural hormone replacement therapy.  DHEA is a precursor to the androgens, testosterone, and the estrogens.  DHEA is important to protein building and repair.  DHEA is primarily made in the adrenal glands and declines dramatically as we age, making it a primary biomarker of aging. DHEA may be of value in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, immune system disorders, and chronic fatigue.

SIDE EFFECTS: Common side effects caused by high doses of DHEA include acne, menstrual irregularities, irritability,  restlessness, and hair loss.
