    Low DHEA...Tried everything...Any ideas?


    My DHEA as measued by DHEA-S and saliva has been chronically low. I have supplement upon my doc's recommendation up to 150 mg per day (75 am and pm) My levels only barely budge. Any ideas or suggestions? Also, I have tried several brands in case brand was issue.

    Yes this can be a sine of Adrenal Fatigue and Thyroid problems get you cortisol levels checked doing a time check saliva test and have your Free T3 and T4 checked.

    Also it can be you have some junk DHEA supplements try this one I do 25mgs a day and it keeps me mid level.

    Try Lonjack and or Trib it seems that one or a combination of the 2 helps to promote DHEA...Some say that taking oral DHEA is mostly absorbed by the liver and not getting any benifet..

    When I was going down hill I tried all kind of supplements.
    LJ100: Tongkat Ali Extract
    did squat for me
    but, from the same web site:
    Alpha Male
    Alpha Male Ultimate Formula - 20 Caps $49.95
    helped me for about 6 months,
    then nothing else helped until I started Androgel.
    It was about 6 years ago, I see different packaging for AlphaMale now,
    may not be the same product any more.
    ------------
    I still have 3 or 4 unopened bottles of each,
    would give it away to someone nice in my neghborhood,
    in exchange for a solid steak + beer, shame to waste it.
