In reply to DHEA for depression, posted by andrewb on November 16, 1999, at 15:32:16

> Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone available in health food stores, can effectively treat depression in some according to the studies quoted below. DHEA tends to decrease with age. Your DHEA levels can be determined with a blood test, consult your physician. Excessive amounts of DHEA may be harmful to one’s health.

James here, my thoughts..

DHEA is an adrenal precursor steroid which is tansformed into androgens and/or estrogens and some other stuff. It is a master precursor that is unique in that there is not a feedback loop to stop production of androgens and/or estrogens as you take DHEA. To me this spell trouble, it is best not to play around with androgens and/or estrogens at home ! Cancer is the ovious troblem.
I'm saving DHEA for when I am older and can document with tests decicencies and moniter levels as I take DHEA. I would not consider taking DHEA at any time w/o tests.
