This test measures the amount of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) in the blood, and it primarily helps assess adrenal function. Elevated levels of DHEA increase the chances of early puberty in boys, and these can lead to irregular menstrual periods in girls. In both males and females, DHEA-S deficiency is associated with aging, dementia, osteoporosis, lupus, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and reduced libido. It is also linked to pituitary gland disorder and AIDS.
The DHEA-Sulfate test is performed to evaluate the risk or presence of adrenal gland disorders. This complements testosterone and other hormone tests for men, and estrogen and other hormone tests for women.
DHEA-Sulfate test results usually within 2 business days.
