DHEA DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE Test

Welcome to DNA Labs UAE, where we offer the DHEA DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE Test. This test measures the levels of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) in the blood, which is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It plays a role in various bodily functions, including metabolism, immune function, and mood regulation.

Test Details

The DHEA test is usually done to assess adrenal gland function or to evaluate certain conditions related to hormone imbalances. Some reasons why a DHEA test may be ordered include:

  1. Adrenal insufficiency: DHEA levels can be used to assess adrenal gland function and diagnose conditions such as Addison’s disease.
  2. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): DHEA levels may be elevated in women with PCOS, a condition characterized by hormonal imbalances, menstrual irregularities, and ovarian cysts.
  3. Adrenal tumors: DHEA levels can help in the diagnosis of adrenal tumors, such as adrenal adenomas or adrenal carcinomas.
  4. Hormonal imbalances: DHEA levels may be ordered along with other hormone tests to evaluate conditions such as hirsutism (excessive hair growth), virilization (development of male characteristics in females), or precocious puberty (early onset of puberty).

The test is typically performed by drawing a blood sample from a vein in the arm. It is important to follow any specific instructions provided by the healthcare provider, such as fasting before the test or avoiding certain medications that may affect hormone levels.
