This test helps evaluate the function of adrenal glands, which are glands located on top of each kidney that produce hormones to help regulate metabolism, immune system, blood pressure and other essential functions. This test can detect adrenal tumors or cancers and helps determine the cause of physical masculine traits in women.
High levels of DHEA-S may indicate congenital adrenal hyperplasia, adrenal cancer, or Cushing’s Disease. Low levels of DHEA-S code indicate Addison’s disease or adrenal hypoplasia. However, these levels are not used to diagnose a certain condition. Further testing is required to locate the cause of the hormone imbalance.
