DHEA

DHEA is one of your sex hormones produced by your adrenal gland, brain and skin.  It helps your body make testosterone and estrogen. Our natural DHEA production is at its highest in our 20’s. By the time we are 70, we make only about 20% of the DHEA we had when we were younger. Besides DHEA, adrenal glands produce the stress hormone cortisol and adrenalin. When a person develops adrenal exhaustion from chronic stress, the adrenal glands can’t make enough DHEA or cortisol. This can lead to the following symptoms:

  • Decreased energy
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Irritability
  • Joint pain
  • Weight gain
  • Blood sugar imbalances

DHEA supplementation is an important component to healing and treating adrenal fatigue and cortisol imbalances. DHEA has been shown to improve:

  • Immune function, autoimmune disease
  • Joint pain
  • Sleep
  • Muscle tone, lean body mass and strength
  • Blood sugar control

At Dynamic Life Health Center, we replace DHEA cautiously because of its potential conversion to testosterone and estrogen. We carefully monitor your levels and adjust dosing as needed so you can obtain optimal results.
