Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS) Test in Khanna
A DHEA-S test measures the amount of the dehydroepiandrosterone hormone in a woman’s blood.
To help evaluate adrenal gland function; to detect adrenal tumors or cancers; to help determine the cause of masculine physical characteristics (virilization) in girls and women or early puberty in boys.
Your doctor would recommend DHEA-S test for you when he sees the signs of high DHEA-S or low DHEA-S.
Symptoms for High DHEA-S include:
- Absence of menstrual periods
- Hair loss/Hair Thinning
- Fertility issues
- Other male traits including a deep voice, absence or small breasts, male pattern baldness, and Adam's apple
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS) is a male sex hormone (androgen) that is present in both men and women. This test measures the level of DHEAS in the blood.
Reference Values Of Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS) Test
Normal blood levels of DHEA-sulphate can differ by sex and age. Typical normal ranges for females are: Ages 18 to 19: 145 to 395 micrograms per decilitre (µg/dL) or 3.92 to 10.66 micromoles per liter (µmol/L)
A normal DHEAS level, in addition to other normal male hormone (androgen) levels, is indicative of the adrenal gland functioning normally. Rarely, DHEAS may be normal when an adrenal tumor or cancer is present but is not secreting hormones.
A high DHEAS blood level may indicate excess production of DHEAS is likely playing a part in the person’s symptoms. However, an increased level of DHEAS is not definitively diagnostic of a specific condition; it usually indicates the need for further testing to investigate the fundamental cause of the hormone imbalance. An elevated DHEAS may indicate an adrenocortical tumor, Cushing disease, adrenal cancer, or adrenal hyperplasia, or rarely a DHEAS-producing ovarian tumor.
A low level of DHEAS may be due to adrenal insufficiency, adrenal dysfunction, Addison disease, or hypopituitarism, a condition characterised by low levels of the pituitary hormones that regulate the production and secretion of adrenal hormones.
