My husband's DHEA Sulphate is 30. Is there something he can do or stop doing to bring it up? Any symptoms he should be seeing for it being this low? His Cortisol Random test results were about in the middle of the range. All other blood work was normal.

Re: DHEA-SO4 Low

Low DHEA can be a sign of adrenal fatigue. The best way to diagnose this is with a 24 hr saliva cortisol test. Blood testing is not as sensitive or accurate. Simply supplimenting DHEA won't necessarily fix adrenal fatigue as the adrenals need to be supported with cortisol as well.

Did your husband also get a full thyroid workup; free T3, free T4, TSH, and antibodies TPO and TG? Often adrenal fatigue is associated with hypothyroidism but most docs don't order the right tests or know how to interpret them correctly.
