It means it is a good, normal level.
It should not be supplemented unless abnormal.

Hi Scot,
You're welcome.
It didn't seem like anyone liked me posting, as no replies, so backed off.

Your DHEA is in a good range and you should not supplement. However when I stated that your adrenals should get checked out, that means MUCH MUCH more than just DHEA sulfate. This means cortisol (typically what should concern you BIGTIME when it comes to those suggestions of "adrenal testing and support" that are in the prescribing information), aldosterone (and other values related to Na/K interchange), progesterone (in women), estrogen (in women), and testosterone (in men).
