DHEA usage and safety precautions

Life Extension's DHEA directions for use are specially drafted to provide safe‚ optimal dosing. Regular blood testing is highly recommended both for dosage accuracy and blood level monitoring. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting low levels of DHEA to age-related factors‚ Life Extension suggests that all people over age 40 begin DHEA supplementation.

For most people‚ the starting dose of DHEA is between 15–75 mg‚ taken in one daily dose. People over age 40 who do not supplement with DHEA usually have serum levels below 200 µg/dL‚ and many are below 100 µg/dL since an age-related decline generally takes place after the third decade in life.1‚16 This product contains 25 mg of regular DHEA and 100 mg of 7-Keto® DHEA per capsule.

DHEA precautions for men

Men with prostate cancer or severe benign prostate disease are advised to avoid DHEA since it can be converted into testosterone (and estrogen). Therefore‚ men are advised to have a PSA and digital rectal exam before supplementing with DHEA to rule out existing prostate disease.

It is important for men over 40 to have a physician check their PSA and DHEA-S serum levels every six to twelve months. Men should also periodically check their blood levels for free testosterone and estrogen to make sure that DHEA is following a youthful metabolic pathway.

DHEA precautions for women

Women should consider estrogen and testosterone testing when they take their DHEA blood test in order to evaluate DHEA's effect on their blood levels of these hormones. Women who have been diagnosed with an estrogen-dependent cancer should consult their physicians before beginning DHEA supplementation.

This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Individual results are not guaranteed‚ and results may vary.
