Who should take the test?

Your love life is not quite what it used to be? You are concerned about your loss of energy? Perhaps you are suffering from mood changes?

As people grow older, their metabolism undergoes a transformation. This transformation involves a reduction in the production of DHEA by the adrenal glands. In contrast to younger individuals, 60-year-olds typically have just one-fifth of the DHEA levels in their bloodstream. DHEA plays a crucial role in various metabolic processes within the body and serves as a significant precursor to both female and male sex hormones. Unlike cortisol, DHEA has a stimulating impact on the immune system.

The test analyzes the morning values of the following hormone:

  • DHEA

Our DHEA Test gives you information about the DHEA concentration in your body as the right amount of DHEA is beneficial for the immune system and general well-being.

How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory.

Test measures
For the DHEA Test we analyse:
  • DHEA
DHEA

DHEA, synthesized in the adrenal glands, holds a significant role in diverse metabolic processes within the body. It also serves as a precursor to both female and male sex hormones. As individuals age, starting from around the age of 30, the production of DHEA gradually decreases, potentially leading to various health issues.

It is responsible for:

  • Burning of body fat
  • Prevention of osteoporosis
  • Minimizing cancer and heart diseases
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Slowing down the aging process
  • Positively influencing memory performance

However, it’s important to note that both excessively low and excessively high levels of DHEA can result in undesirable symptoms.

DHEA’s influence extends to cardiovascular health, gastrointestinal health, immune function, and brain processes. Reduced DHEA levels are suspected to elevate the risk of conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, osteoporosis, depression, heart disease, and obesity. Conversely, elevated DHEA levels in women can lead to a deeper voice and increased body hair growth.

Symptoms
Symptoms the DHEA Test is suitable for:
  • Loss of libido
  • Depressive moods
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of energy
  • Declining muscle strength
  • Circulatory problems

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

Why is it important to analyze morning values of DHEA?

The DHEA Test analyzes the morning values of DHEA because the concentration of DHEA in the morning can provide valuable information about its impact on the immune system and overall well-being.

How can knowing my DHEA levels benefit me?

Understanding your DHEA concentration is beneficial as the right amount of DHEA is crucial for a healthy immune system and general well-being.

What can be the causes of a DHEA deficiency?

When growing older, the DHEA level drops. In some people they drop so far, that they show symptoms of DHEA deficiency. Another cause of a deficiency can be an adrenal insufficiency. Since DHEA, like cortisol, is formed in the adrenal glands, a malfunction can quickly lead to a deficiency.

How does DHEA affect our health?

Low DHEA levels are suspected of increasing the risk of diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, osteoporosis, depression, heart disease and obesity. This is probably due to the fact that DHEA is involved in many important metabolic processes in the body. If an important component is missing there, it affects the whole body.

I heard that DHEA is only important for men?

It is true that men have a significantly higher DHEA level than women. Nevertheless, women also benefit from a good DHEA value.
