    Hi Everyone,

    I recently had a blood test and it showed very low levels of dhea and high morning cortisol. My doctor put me on 40 mg dhea to take one capsule in the morning. It was made up in a compound pharmacy and cost me $157.00. (AU) as I live in Australia. Just wanted to know if anyone has had any good reports about this hormone. I dont know what to do about the high cortisol tho. My doc seems to think exercise would help to bring it down. Is that right? All I know is that I hope it will make me feel better. I have only been on it for a week now.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Sue

    Sounds like you had to buy expensive DHEA. I ordered some for my son to take but I quit, as I didn't know if he really needed it. I'm trying to cut down the things he is taking, as he had so many supplements. But I think his body is slowly healing itself- he's a lot better than a year ago. His energy level is increasing. I hope this treatment helps you. Terri
