You may have low levels of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) due to adrenal insufficiency‚ illness‚ age‚ or the use of medications like insulin‚ opiates‚ danazol‚ or corticosteroids. DHEA is a steroid hormone naturally formed by your body.

Symptoms of a potential DHEA deficiency include fatigue‚ depression‚ anxiety‚ irritability‚ sensitivity to noise‚ loss of sex drive‚ dry skin‚ dry hair‚ dry eyes‚ and hair loss.
