Default DHEA decline starts at 20-30 yrs of age

I had no clue about DHEA until I started with Integrative MD's in the 90's...I did work with some conventional hormone replacement after menopause and got off them....not good. I have this info posted on an another section here, but thought it should be here too. Good to have levels checked and we all lose this "hormone" as we age. I'm much older, but I believe the DHEA keeps me more vibrant in my late years. Skin is good, libido is there, but no interest in the opposite gender or any gender.

I'm on another group and get involved to some degree and just read thru some comments on low energy and depression etc. I went into my thyroid story and then Vit D story and just mentioned the DHEA issue which I believe if a person doesn't see integrative/functional MD's...they most likely never know of DHEA decline in our bodies. I didn't know until my first visit to integrative MD in my late 50's. We live in a conventional medicine world.

So I'm bringing this up again as it's not been brought up since June when I posted on it.

I just talked to an old male friend who is 79 and we talk candidly about everything. He is taking grape seed extract now about 8 yrs and continues. Had a cancer issue and now a few yrs in remission and I spent about an hour giving him some of my education on holistic healing. He talked about impotence and knew nothing about DHEA so I tried to educate him and told him I didn't think conventional MD's tested this hormone. He is not on the net so can't do his own research.

Of course I told him to ask for the DHEA test from his MD, failing that to find an integrative MD and get the test, failing that go to the health food store and talk about DHEA with a health consultant. I told him at 78 I still have libido but no interest in any partner for sure. I just know at his late age, his DHEA tank is depleted. He agreed. His MD talks about viagra but I told him about an old bf who died while on clinical trials of viagra. This man has so much trust in conventional medicine which so many do.

I told him about how so many cancer research centers are working with grapeseed ex in their cancer research...He had no idea. I gave him so much info in the hour on the phone.....be well all. C
