DHEA Sulfate, Immunoassay

$59.00 $36.00
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) is an androgen, a male sex hormone that is responsible for gender differentiation and produces male characteristics such as a deep voice and facial hair. This androgen is found in both men and women. This test measures the level of DHEAS in the blood and is used to assess adrenal gland function, to detect adrenal tumors or cancers and to help find out the cause of male characteristics in females (i.e. excess facial hair). A DHEAS is commonly ordered when a female has abnormal hair growth (aka Hirsutism), acne, absence of monthly period (wait, this is a problem?), or difficulty conceiving (infertility).
