Who should take the test?
Your love life is not quite what it used to be? You are concerned about your loss of energy? Perhaps you are suffering from mood changes?
When people age, their metabolism changes. The adrenal glands start to produce less DHEA: In comparison to young people, 60-year-olds have only one-fifth of the amount of DHEA in their blood. DHEA plays an important role in the different metabolic processes in the body and is an important precursor of female and male sex hormones. Unlike cortisol, it has an activating effect on the immune system.
The test analyzes the morning value of the following hormone:
Our DHEA Saliva Test gives you information about the DHEA concentration in your body as the right amount of DHEA is beneficial for the immune system and general well-being.
How does it work?
You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each hormone and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.
What will my results tell me?
Your results will provide detailed information about whether your DHEA level is normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?
