I have been doing lots of reading since getting my last set of adrenal and dhea results. I have come to the conclusion that bascially my adrenals do seem to be getting better and improving when I compare to previous results over the years. So thats good.....
However my DHEA level remains woefully low and pretty much has always been low since I was first diagnosed hypo. Latest results:
0.08 (range .3 to 1.0)
So what I am struglling to understand, and can't really find the facts on this - if my adrenals are improving, why would my DHEA levels remain so low? My only bad symtpom now is hair loss and that is linked to low DHEA. I know people can supplement DHEA etc but I dont really want to explore that in this post- I just really want to understand first of all what would cause DHEA to remain suppressed despite improvements on all other tests.
Could T4 suppress DHEA levels? Could any medication reduce DHEA levels? Is there something I am missing that is keeping mine repressed?
