All About Adrenopause: The Decline of DHEA Levels With Age As we age our hormone levels drop, causing health complications ranging from muscle loss to cardiovascular disease. Doctors tend to focus on declining testosterone and estrogen levels in males and females, respectively. Age-related decrease of DHEA levels suggests an “adrenopause” phenomenon characterized by low DHEA and maintained cortisol levels. 9 Indeed, DHEA levels range between 1.33 ng/mL and 7.78 ng/mL between 18 and 40 years, and between 0.63 ng/mL and 4.7 ng/mL after 40 years, for both men and women.
7 By the age of 70–80 years, levels may be as low as 10%–20% of those. Adrenopause is the decline in secretion and levels of adrenal androgens such as dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) from the zona reticularis of the adrenal glands with age. Levels of adrenal androgens start to increase around age 7 or 8 years, peak in early adulthood around age 20 to 25 years, and decrease at a rate of approximately 2% per. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate ester are the most abundant steroids in humans. DHEA levels fall with age in men and women, reaching values sometimes as low as 10%-20% of those encountered in young individuals.
This age-related decrease suggests an “adrenopause” phenomenon. DHEA (S) levels peak at young adult age and then decline throughout adulthood into old age. The term “adrenopause” might be misleading, suggesting a specific age of transition by analogy to menopause, but the established term “andropause” also refers to a gradual decline in a hormone level. The second hormonal system demonstrating age-related changes is the circulating levels of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulphate (DHEAS), which.
Because of the profound age-related decrease of blood levels of the steroid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA; prasterone) and its sulfate ester (DHEAS), both essentially secreted by adrenals in human beings (1–5), it has been suggested that there is an “adrenopause” characterized by low value of blood DHEA(S) with maintenance of cortisol level. DHEA levels normally decline with age in both men and women. There is no reliable evidence that taking DHEA supplements prevents aging-related conditions. DHEA is a “hormone” naturally made in the body by the adrenal glands near the kidneys and by the liver. DHEA helps to make male and female sex hormones within the body.
DHEA levels seem to. In your 20s, DHEAS levels range between 65 and 380 mcg. For 30-something women, normal levels range from 45 to 270 mcg/dL, with levels further dropping to 32 to 240 mcg/dL in your 40s.
Levels vary from 26 to 200 mcg/dL in your 50s, from 13 to 130 mcg/dL in your 60s and from 17.
