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:

  • DHEA

Our DHEA 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 levels 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? Then you can contact us by mail at contact@verisana.co.uk.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What exactly is the DHEA Test?

The DHEA Test is a helpful tool used to measure the morning value of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in men and women. It involves collecting three saliva samples to assess the level of this important hormone.

What are the signs of DHEA deficiency?

Symptoms of low DHEA levels may include decreased energy levels, changes in mood, and reduced libido. Individuals experiencing these symptoms may benefit from testing their DHEA levels to determine if supplementation or other interventions are necessary.

What can be the causes of a DHEA deficiency?

When growing older, the DHEA level drops. In some people they drop so far, that they show symptoms of DHEA deficiency. Another cause of a deficiency can be an adrenal insufficiency. Since DHEA, like cortisol, is formed in the adrenal glands, an malfunction can quickly lead to a deficiency.

How does DHEA affect our health?

Low DHEA levels are suspected of increasing the risk of diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, osteoporosis, depression, heart disease and obesity. This is probably due to the fact that DHEA is involved in many important metabolic processes in the body. If an important component is missing there, it affects the whole body.

I heard that DHEA is only important for men?

It is true that men have a significantly higher DHEA level than women. Nevertheless, women also benefit from a good DHEA value.
