DHEA Therapy

In combination with hormone replacement therapy, or for women unable to undergo HRT, DHEA may be a viable alternative for easing symptoms of menopause.

For many women, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during menopause means the difference between unbearable symptoms and ones that are well managed or not-existent. But some women are unable or unwilling to delve into hormone replacement territory..

For these women that may be looking for another option, DHEA is an alternative worth looking into. DHEA is an adrenal hormone that appears to ease the severity of menopause symptoms, including some of the most common: loss of bone density, depression, weight gain and decreased sexual desire. In women, DHEA serves as a precursor hormone from which other reproductive hormones, like estrogen and testosterone, are created by the body.
