DHEA-S testing levels

by 258 · February 08, 2013 at 5:22 PM

I eat a very low carb diet and have been having issues with weight fluctuations and a layer of abdominal fat that wont reduce. My Dr (Dr. Cowan) in the Bay Area suggested getting a DHEA-S test. Got the results back and the level is at 148 and the normal range is <560. I sent him an email to check in but just wondering if other people have experienced these levels of DHEA? Normal? Low? Very Low? Thanks much!

I searched the internet and found this information from Medline Plus.

Normal blood levels of DHEA-sulfate can differ by sex and age.

Typical normal ranges for females are:

Ages 18 - 19: 145 - 395 ug/dL Ages 20 - 29: 65 - 380 ug/dL Ages 30 - 39: 45 - 270 ug/dL Ages 40 - 49: 32 - 240 ug/dL Ages 50 - 59: 26 - 200 ug/dL Ages 60 - 69: 13 - 130 ug/dL Ages 69 and older: 17 - 90 ug/dL Typical normal ranges for males are:

Ages 18 - 19: 108 - 441 ug/dL Ages 20 - 29: 280 - 640 ug/dL Ages 30 - 39: 120 - 520 ug/dL Ages 40 - 49: 95 - 530 ug/dL Ages 50 - 59: 70 - 310 ug/dL Ages 60 - 69: 42 - 290 ug/dL Ages 69 and older: 28 - 175 ug/dL
