Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Sulfate Blood Test

Sample Report
Specimen Type: Blood


Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Sulfate Blood Test

This test measures Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) in the blood.  DHEA-S is a male sex hormone produced primarily by the adrenal glands.  It is also produced in smaller amounts in the ovaries or testicles.  Elevated DHEA can be caused by adrenal tumors or, in some cases, ovarian tumors.  Excess DHEA can cause early puberty in young boys or the absence of menstrual periods or the development of male characteristics such as a deeper voice or excess facial or body hair in women  

The DHEA-S test is typically ordered to evaluate adrenal function or when a person shows symptoms of excess androgen or male sex hormone production.  For women, this test may be ordered to determine a cause for infertility or when they are not experiencing a menstrual period.

For men, this test is often ordered with testosterone or other hormone tests.  For women, DHEA is often tested along with estrogen and other hormone tests.

Turnaround time for the DHEA test is typically 1-2 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The DHEA test has no fasting requirements.
