Description

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is an endogenous (naturally made) steroid hormone originating from the adrenal gland, the ovarian theca cells and in the brain in women. DHEA and DHEAS (the sulfated ester form) are the most abundant circulating hormones in the human body but decrease dramatically with aging and are nearly undetectable by seventy plus years of age. This age-related decline in DHEAS may directly relate to decreased physical prowess.

DHEA acts as a “building block” or precursor hormone in the production of testosterone, which is involved in the early development of ovarian follicles (egg-containing cysts). In its own right, as a weak androgen, it seems to have direct effects on follicle development apart from those of testosterone. Since the initial report in 2000, DHEA supplementation has been shown to enhance ovarian response in poor ovarian responders in numerous studies and meta-analyses. DHEA supplementation has been associated with improved ovarian reserve, increased oocyte yield and quality, and a higher pregnancy rate or live birth rate following in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. (It should be noted, however, that studies on DHEA have been mostly retrospective, relatively small, and with different definitions for “poor ovarian response.”

Potential Side Effects:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Oily skin/Acne
  • Increases in facial or body hair growth

DHEAS in high dosages may not be safe in individuals with heart or liver disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, thyroid conditions, polycystic ovary syndrome, adrenal dysfunction, or history of blood clotting disorders. Children, pregnant or breastfeeding women should not take DHEA.

DHEA may also interfere with anticoagulants (blood thinners), hormonal therapy, antconvulsants, and medications for heart, liver and diabetes.
