    Do you think we should take DHEA?
    One substance currently available as a dietary supplement is in reality a hormone with potentially harmful effects, says the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone, produced by the adrenal gland which is converted to other hormones in the body, such as estrogen and testosterone.

    People who take supplements of DHEA may increase their risk for hormone-related cancers such as breast, endometrial, and prostate cancers. And for a person who has one of these cancers, DHEA could cause tumors to grow more quickly, according to the AICR. To date, the Food and Drug Administration has received over 2600 reports of adverse health problems linked to consumers’ use of DHEA.icon_question.gif

    I am quite confident that DHEA will
    never become standard treatment for
    systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

    I think DHEA is a safe sup. But as hormone and should be taken by
    cycling dosages as with most hormones. Study the dosages and use what works rather than just gulping down random amounts.
