Question: DHEAS

I have had UC for about 4 years and I take Remicade to keep the Colitis in remission. I have had my blood tested a few times over the last few years for DHEA levels and every time it comes back as abnormally low. Is this common for people who have IBD? Would I benefit from taking a DHEA supplement?

Answer

We to do our best to answer all questions. Because DHEA is outside of the area of expertise of gastroenterologists, we are unable to answer your question. An endocrinologist is the best type of physician to approach regarding DHEA.
