The DHEA-S test is typically ordered to evaluate adrenal function or when a person shows symptoms of excess androgen or male sex hormone production. For women, this test may be ordered to determine a cause for infertility or when they are not experiencing a menstrual period.

  • Sample Type: Blood
  • Results: 2-4 days
  • Age: 18+

The DHEA-S test specifically measures the level of DHEA-S, an important androgen hormone predominantly produced by the adrenal glands. While other hormone tests may measure estrogen, testosterone, or other adrenal hormones like cortisol, this test focuses on DHEA-S.

Certain medications, stress, obesity, and underlying health conditions can influence DHEA-S levels. Smoking is also known to increase DHEA-S levels.

Conditions like adrenal carcinoma or adrenal hyperplasia can lead to elevated DHEA-S levels. Additionally, PCOS, a common condition in women of reproductive age, can result in increased levels. Low levels can be seen in adrenal insufficiency and hypopituitarism.

Abnormal levels of DHEA-S can affect multiple body functions. High levels can lead to virilization in women, causing unwanted hair growth, acne, and menstrual problems. Lower levels can lead to fatigue, depression, and a lower sex drive.

No fasting is required. Patients should stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection.
