Does everyone with the adrenal form of adrenomyeloneuropathy take DHEA? If so please share your experiences. If not, and you’d like me to elaborate on why it’s absolutely essential, please let me know,
I don't take it and would, very much, like to hear your thoughts on it!
DHEA is the most abundant steroid in the human body and is involved in the manufacture of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and corticosterone. It is primarily produced by the adrenal glands.
If we don’t have functioning adrenal glands, we are therefore as a result, deficient. What’s so messed (however typical unfortunately) is that doctors do not recommend that we take it, as you don’t need it to “live”. They recommend of course that we take Hydroortisone and Florinef. DHEA is not patentable, so they don’t bother to recommend it.
If you choose to try it, get a sublingual version.
Thank you. I will, definitely investigate it more!
DHEA is naturally produced by the adrenal glands. After my lab test depicted a low amount, my endo suggested DHEA as a supplement thinking it might also help with my fatigue-it didn't. I started out with 10 mg and now take 20 mg.
I’m taking 50 mg of sublingual.
Good to know and also about the sublingual availability.
This is the best form as it will bypass the liver and get absorbed more efficiently. Be well!
