The short answer to that is "No"! Unfortunately, DHEA, while ostensibly the same molecule minus the sulfate, is not the same as DHEA-S when it comes time to measure and add the result into the software.
I'm not going to get into the physiological differences because this article does a great job of explaining it.
There are a number of differences to pay attention to:
- DHEA is measured in ng/dl whereas DHEA-S is measured in mcg/dl
- They both have very different reference ranges as shown by screenshots below from Labcorp and Quest:
DHEA (from LabCorp)
AS you can see below, DHEA has only one range for people 19 years or older:
DHEA-S (from QUEST)
As you can see below, the DHEA-S has a more varied standard range based on age.
