Advice please! As I have frequently moaned about here, the last 3 years have resulted in a steadily increasing disability for me, especially with regards to fatigue and effort intolerance. I'm now at the point where I am more or less housebound and spend most of the day in my armchair.
Neither my rheumy nor endo can suggest any solution - or even treatment. So last week, in desperation, I tried a home test for selected hormone levels. The results are normal, except for DHEA sulphate, which is well under range at 0.4 (normal range is 1.4 - 8.1). This is accounted for by my adrenal insufficiency (the adrenals are responsible for producing DHEA). I'm on 8mg pred atm.
My question now is whether to start taking DHEA supplements. No doctor has raised it as a thing worth considering and the research evidence seems weak. However, I have literally no other ideas on how to improve my situation. Thoughts?
