DHEA in Women

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid hormone synthesized from cholesterol and produced by the adrenal glands in women. DHEA is a precursor to female sex hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. It is often called the “mother hormone” because it is the source that fuels the body’s metabolic pathway.

Like most hormones, women have optimal DHEA levels in their 20s. After that, DHEA levels slowly decline with aging. There is an 80% decline in DHEA by the age of 70. Age-related decline of DHEA is inevitable, but the decline in DHEA associated with chronic stress and adrenal fatigue is not. Women who are chronically stressed exhaust their adrenal glands, which results in low cortisol and low DHEA levels. Prevention and/or treatment of adrenal fatigue will prevent this.
