Abstract

Age related declines in dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate have been postulated to aggravate some diseases ofaging. As a result, DHEA supplementation of ten is touted as the ''fountain of youth,'' and it is being used widely in an unregulated fashion with out evidence of efficacy or safety. This review addresses DHEAreplacement, discussing issues of bioavailability and possible beneficial effects. Safety concerns also are addressed. At present, we believe that DHEA replacement is not suitable for widespread clinical use; however, the potential for future hormonal therapy of aging using thiscompound is such that fur ther investigation certainly is warranted.
