Depression and DHEA

 

DHEA has been extensively studied in depression. DHEA levels are reduced in major depressive disorders in both adolescents and adults, and an elevated cortisol/DHEA ratio predicts a delay in recovery. Women lacking detectable DHEA have an increased occurrence of depression. DHEA has also been a useful remedy for depression.

The majority of clinical trials investigating the effect of DHEA on depression support its use for this purpose under the guidance of a specialist.

 

Clinical Studies

  • A well-conducted study by the National Institute of Mental Health found DHEA to be quite effective in treating midlife long-lasting, mild depression (dysthymia). The symptoms that improved most significantly were inability to gain pleasure from normally pleasurable experiences (anhedonia), loss of energy, lack of motivation, emotional “numbness,” sadness, inability to cope, and worrying.

  • A study with a treatment of 3 months of DHEA supplementation improved self-reported physical and psychological well-being in age-advanced individuals. These results were supported by a recent study that showed DHEA therapy improved depression among middle-aged people.

  • In a 1999 study, M. Bloch used a double blind crossover trial of DHEA to treat 15 patients suffering from midlife dysthymia (minor depression of middle-age onset).  There was a 60% improvement during the DHEA phase, while only 20% improvement during the placebo phase. The symptoms that improved most were anhedonia [lack of joy in daily living] loss of energy, lack of motivation, emotional 'numbness', sadness, inability to cope, and worry.
