DHEA, without a doubt, has a role to play in hormone replacement
therapy. I have treated at least 300 patients and find this steroid to
be helpful for anti-aging purposes as far as increasing muscle strength,
better density of bone, and improved skin color. It's hard to say
whether wrinkles have improved.
I typically prescribe 5 to 15mg in women and 10 to 30mg in men. It's
possible that higher dosages may be less beneficial than lower dosages,
except when treating autoimmune conditions. I've had success with one
patient with rheumatoid arthritis whom I switched from prednisone to
DHEA. My caution to users is not to take too much of this steroid.

I use it for hormone replacement therapy and a variety of conditions,
including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, HIV and immune
enhancement. Since I also use other holistic modalities in addition to
the DHEA therapy, it's hard to ascribe the improvement in my patients
exclusively to DHEA.
I definitely check DHEA levels initially, and for those who are on
hormone replacement therapy for anti-aging purposes. Once the blood
DHEAS level becomes stable, I test it once every few months to keep it
in the upper normal range of youth.
