DHEA – otherwise known as Dehydroepiandrosterone – is a hormone that the body produces naturally in the adrenal gland, which helps the production of other hormones, such as oestrogen and testosterone. Peaking in early adulthood, DHEA slowly decreases the older you get.
As an endogenous (internal origin) steroid hormone precursor, DHEA is one of the most abundant circulating steroids present in the human body. And although it has little biological effect by itself, DHEA is powerful when converted into other hormones.
There are a number of symptoms that could indicate you have low levels of DHEA in your body, such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, unexplained weight loss and loss of libido.
DHEA therapy – or DHEA bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – is prescribed to successfully manage menopausal symptoms Evidence shows that having optimal levels of DHEA in your body can also:
· Improve mood and memory
· Reduce fatigue
· Promote well-being
· Improve testosterone levels in middle-aged adults
· Help with obesity
· Build up the adrenal glands
· Strengthen the immune system
· Build up bone and muscle strength
Bio ID Health Can Help
Identifying a reduction of DHEA hormone levels in your blood is the first step in improving your health. Our doctors at Bio ID Health specialise in producing and distributing bioidentical hormones, including bioidentical DHEA replacement.
With a goal of giving everyone access to doctor-led bioidentical hormones, here at Bio ID Health, our mission is to innovate, treat and make you feel better by re-balancing your hormones. We believe this innovative treatment can be life-changing and, as such, invite you to start your journey with us today.
Once you have completed our online symptom checker questionnaire, you will speak to one of our online consultants, who will then arrange for you to have a blood test at home, via a venous blood draw, carried out by a qualified phlebotomist– to assess your blood biochemistry and hormone levels.
We also perform:
· Full blood count and biochemistry – including liver and kidney function, cholesterol, calcium and iron levels, and lipid profile
· Advanced thyroid check
· Adrenal hormone function – including cortisol and DHEA
· Sex hormone assessment – including progesterone, oestrogen, testosterone, FSH, LH and SHBG
· Vitamin level assessment – including Vit D, B12 and folate
By completing comprehensive blood test analysis, our doctors are able to assess all your hormone levels to identify any specific hormone imbalances you may have – as well as any vitamin deficiencies.
We then create a plan and produce bioidentical hormones, which are chemically identical to the hormones in your body – so you will not experience any side effects – and have these directly delivered to your door. These come in either gels, lozenges or capsules – it’s your choice. We will then arrange a follow up online consultation and a further blood test two months’ later.
So if you’re feeling not quite right and you’re not sure why, then get your hormone levels checked today with Bio ID Health.
What do our patients say?
Hear what one of our patients had to say about us:
Julie Green commented: “I suffered from menopause symptoms for a few years, including irritability, hot flushes, joint pain, and memory loss, to mention a few. I didn’t want to use HRT because I don’t believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution.
Dr. Kinsella saw me for a consultation, and following a simple blood test, he was able to figure out what I was missing. For the past three months, I’ve been taking a combination of oestrogen gel, progesterone, and vitamin D tablets, and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my overall happiness and well-being; even my hot flushes are less frequent.
Dr. Kinsella and his colleagues are still on hand, keeping a careful eye on me and conducting regular blood tests to check my levels. I’m back to my old self, and I owe it to the team to thank them.”
