GetTested’s DHEA Tests analyses the levels of DHEA in saliva. Too low levels of DHEA can cause symptoms such as fatigue, depression, low libido and obesity, while too high levels can lead to symptoms such as PCOS, acne and hair loss. If adrenal fatigue or hormonal imbalances are suspected, it is recommended to measure the levels of DHEA because low levels of DHEA are common in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

What is DHEA?

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), also known as androstenolone, is produced in the adrenal glands and counts as a so-called pro-hormone, i.e. it is further converted to the hormones estrogen and testosterone. DHEA deficiency can occur because of tired adrenal glands or low hormone levels. We mostly produce DHEA at the age of 20 and then the production gradually decreases over the years, so people often talk about DHEA as a rejuvenating hormone, or a hormone that helps us stay young.

Because DHEA is a pro-hormone, it can also affect the hormone balance of estrogen and testosterone. If hormonal imbalances or adrenal fatigue are suspected, it may therefore be a good idea to also measure DHEA.

For those of you who want to make a complete evaluation of your hormones and adrenal glands, we have specific tests for this – Men’s Hormone Test and Women’s Hormone Test – which, in addition to DHEA, also measures cortisol and estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

Common symptoms of low DHEA:

  • Fatigue / low energy
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Low libido
  • Decreased potency
  • Overweight
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dry skin

Common symptoms of high DHEA:

  • PCOS
  • Hair loss
  • Acne
  • Sleep disorders
  • Irritability / anger

DHEA too low or too high

Low levels of DHEA may occur as a result of adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, Addison’s disease or in pituitary insufficiency. High levels of DHEA can occur due to PCOS, breast cancer, adrenal tumors or Cushing’s syndrome.

    In my quest for optimal health, hormones have always been an area of intrigue. DHEA, often dubbed the ‘mother hormone’, particularly caught my attention due to its plethora of potential benefits. GetTested’s DHEA Test came highly recommended from a friend, and the experience has been enlightening. The ease of use was evident right from the start. The kit was organized, ensuring that collecting and dispatching the sample was hassle-free. This user-centric approach was deeply appreciated, especially in a domain as complex as hormonal testing. My results were delivered promptly and were eye-opening. Comprehensive and easy to decipher, they offered a window into an aspect of my health I’d never considered in such depth. Each value was explained, eliminating any ambiguity. Moreover, the actionable steps suggested made it simple to incorporate changes. Post-test, with some adjustments to my lifestyle and diet based on the results, I’ve observed enhancements in my day-to-day vigor and mood stability. This test has been instrumental in shedding light on an often overlooked facet of health. For those on a path of self-discovery and holistic well-being, this DHEA Test is indispensable. Would make it 5 stars but I had to re-do the test once. Otherwise all amazing. 🙂
