Dear Nikki
DHEA is a pro-hormone for sex hormones. It is mainly made by the adrenal glands, but also in a lesser volume by the ovaria, fat tissue and brain. They need to check your adrenal glands for overactivity ( high adrenalin suppresses DHEA forming) and basically treat the cause of the problem. They have to exclude growths on the adrenal glands.
