I posted as a reply to a different thread, but not sure if it’s better to start to a new one.
I haven’t yet seen an RE yet (our appointment is next week), but I did start taking DHEA 75 mg a day starting a week and a half ago. A few days after starting, I had bloodwork done with my regular doctor (we were worried I was hyperthyroid as my TSH has been low on last couple tests). My TSH is normal now (yay), but she said my DHEA level was super high- 800 or so. Testosterone is a little high (was low before), at 115. Has anyone else had levels this high when on DHEA supplementation? Is it normal? (I’m just not sure what the level should be when supplementing for DOR). She said I should stop until I see the RE on Tuesday.
For those of you taking it, do you know what the blood level should be for DHEA on this supplementation, or testosterone? I’m wondering if being this high is where they want it to be, or if I should scale back. (I’ll also ask the RE on Tuesday, just thought I’d see if any here had advice).
