: Yes, that's the article my doctor referred to when he told me to start taking 25mg of DHEA in
: the morning with my hydrocortisone and florinef! Even though the study had 24 women, he
: suggested that I take it anyway. That's all the information I could find in the literature at the
: time. It's definitely made a difference in my well being!
: : I have an article about this that my rheumatologist gave me. It is from the New England Journal of Medicine Vol. 341 Number 14
: : Pages 1073-1074 by Doctor Wolfgang Oelkers.Please
: : look it up and read it. I have not started on
: : the DHEA, but would like to know more about it.
: : I have had Addison's for 34 year
What is DHEA? My endo has never mentioned it. Is it a script or can you buy it over the counter?
