Default DHEA decline starts at 20-30 yrs of age

I'm certainly not a sex expert but have been taking DHEA for years under guidance of alternative/integrative MD I see. Had my levels tested about 12 yrs ago or more and they were on decline...I'm 77 soon and still feel a libido but have no desire for a partner...

Do research on DHEA. It's OTC in the U.S. but check your levels. There are books in print on DHEA therapy and I own one.

I don't know why this is "broken"...when I go to the links online I can open it up. Here is LifeExtension's EXTENSIVE overview and history on DHEA:

http://www.lifeextension.com/protoco...hea.../Page-01
The natural steroid hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) was first introduced to Life Extension members four decades ago in 1981 at a time when the ...

Well, this link takes me to a main page, so I type in DHEA Restoration Therapy and the whole article comes up. I don't know why I have so much trouble with posting links.


My "gut" tells me, I would never know about DHEA if it weren't for the integrative MD's I've been seeing over the last decade or so.

Do you copy the link straight from the URL bar when you are on the page that you want to share? This is the best way to make sure the link goes to the page you want it to.

Sometimes if copied from another site/page/forum a link will only partially be copied, so then it is broken when others click it.
It may work for you , because you may have the cookies to the correct page in your computer history from reading that page previously.

Thanks all on copying the link, I've had troubles with this issue from day 1, hard to teach this old bird on this technology. I don't even know what cookies mean, but it's ok...bear with me...I get by as best my patience will let me at this later time in my life.

Just heard my favorite weekend MD, he's the one who does PRP and Stem Cell injections but is also very holistic and spiritual etc etc. A 50some yr old man called in about low T and the MD said stem cells could help but stem cells are expensive. Very expensive.

So I thought of the DHEA again and how getting that tested and going from there with this alternative treatment. I still take 25mg most days.

It's very anti aging also.
