- Stop doing things that deplete DHEA or block its production (statin drugs deplete DHEA, high insulin levels block production)
- Deal with adrenal stress first
- Address low cholesterol as DHEA is synthesized from cholesterol. If low cholesterol, consider assessing diet to make sure there is enough healthy fat.
- Correct Vitamin D insufficiency as D is involved in DHEA synthesis
- Get adequate sleep
- Exercise regularly
- Use adaptogenic herbs
Personally, I recommend DHEA supplementation but start low and build up.
