My saliva test shows that my DHEA is very low and so I have started using DHEA cream to try and boost it. An article here suggests cream is preferable to tablets:
I am using 5mg of cream in the morning. I’m also trying to introduce a little pregnenolone as this article suggests it can help restore adrenal health:
I found 5mg of pregnenolone at night made me very sleepy the next day. Last night I used a tiny amount of cream (about 1mg) and don’t have the excessive sleepiness I did on 5mg. Have you heard of this and would you say cream is OK versus tablets? Thank youMay 30, 2016 at 10:09 am #6911
Hi Helen. Yes DHEA cream is generally considered more effective than the pills. As for determining the right kind of bioidentical hormone treatment that you need, that’s something that should really be left up to your doctor. Too much or too little can have some serious unintended consequences, so be sure that you are doing it under the supervision of a qualified professional. Look for a good integrative doctor if you can. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific!
I suffered from Adrenal Fatigue, and I'm here to help as many people as I can! (Note that I'm not a doctor!)
