I went to a doctor last week to show my DHEA test result that shows that it is under the normal rate. The doctor was nice, but the result was dissapointing. He said that when DHEA is low for a woman it is normal, because it is a hormone to produce testosteron which is male hormone. Then he said that my symptomps (headache and hairloss) was due to my SLE.
My own doctor for SLE also seemed have no idea about my low DHEA. So, I have a few problems here.
Both of the doctors seems didn't know that usually people with Lupus have low DHEA, but I didn't want to blame them because I got this statement from internet which means could be wrong. I also read in some reliable websites that DHEA is sometimes used for treating SLE patients. So, in my opinion, why my doctor seems didn't really care about that? Sorry for my complaining because I just wanted to know if this is a new knowledge they should know and perhaps it will be a hope for me.
I still want to look for this DHEA treatment. I wonder has anyone taken it? I don't want to try by myself because it must be under prescription.
