Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Bioidentical Hormones (Brand Name Fidelin)
About DHEA

DHEA also known as androstenolone or prasterone, is an important endogenous sex hormone. DHEA is the most abundant circulating steroid in humans, produced in the adrenal glands, the gonads, and the brain, where it functions predominantly as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the androgen and estrogen sex steroids. DHEA also has a variety of important biological effects in its own right by binding to an array of nuclear and cell surface receptors and acting as a neurosteroid.

Why Optimize DHEA Levels with HRT at Forever Ageless

Since DHEA is available over-the-counter, many patients have tried it and were disappointed because they did not see positive effects, mostly due to substandard products, inappropriate dosages or formulations, as well as wrong timing.

At Forever Ageless, we advise you how to effectively and safely use this very important and beneficial hormone. We closely follow the levels and adjust the doses in order to achieve the most beneficial levels.
Health Effects of DHEA
  • Strength and Energy - There is some evidence of the positive effect of DHEA on strength and energy levels in the elderly
  • Memory - DHEA supplementation has been is thought to be useful for memory function in normal middle aged or older adults
  • Female Reproductive Health - DHEA supplementation has been used in reproductive medicine in combination with gonadotropins as a way to treat female infertility
  • Cardiovascular Disease and Risk of Death - It has been suggested that low serum levels of DHEAS may be associated with increased incidence of coronary heart disease in men. A higher level of endogenous DHEA correlated with a lower risk of death or cardiovascular disease. DHEA supplementation restored oxidative balance in diabetic patients, reducing tissue levels of pentosidine--a biomarker for advanced glycation endproducts
  • Lupus - There is some evidence of short term benefit DHEA supplementation in those with systemic lupus erythematosus. Currently, a large prospective placebo-controlled trial is underway
  • Safety - DHEA is produced naturally in the human body and has a safe history of use for the past 25 years. A multitude of additional studies utilizing doses from 25 mg up to 2,250 mg per day for up to 24 months of therapy in men, women and even children have demonstrated that DHEA is well-tolerated and has numerous benefits with no serious adverse events. However, DHEA may stimulate tumor growth in types of cancer that are sensitive to hormones, such as some types of breast, uterine and prostate cancer
