How Can I Lower My Dhea Level So I Won’t Go Bald As A Female Age 52?
I was told I have too high testosterone level of DHEA. My hair is thinning really badly. The doctor did not pursue going any furthier with it; he only told me it is high and that I have male-pattern alopecia. There has got to be an answer. I am on Medicaid only and exhausted my insurance until July 1. I don’t want to spend all my time at an endrocronologist because it will take a lot out of my Medicaid and I need to have a foot and hand surgery. Can a DHEA level be lowered in a woman so she can save her hair? Where can I find help?
Hi Susan -
I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you! I hope you’ve long since discovered the cause of your hair loss and gotten some treatment for it. If you did find out how to lower your testosterone levels, perhaps you’d consider coming back and telling us how things turned out for you? Your experience might be invaluable to someone else suffering from the same symptoms.
Here are some links that might be helpful for you in any case. Best of luck to you!
