Understanding Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate in Gurgaon


What is Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate in Gurgaon?

A Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate test evaluates the level of dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS), a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, two small glands located above your kidneys. This hormone plays a role in the production of male and female sex hormones. This test is often done to assess adrenal function and diagnose certain conditions related to hormone imbalance. 

What does Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate measure?

A Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate test measures the levels of dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS) in the blood. DHEAS is a steroid hormone that is present in both males and females. It is primarily produced by the adrenal glands, with smaller amounts being produced by ovaries in females and testicles in males. 

DHEAS plays a role in developing male secondary sexual characteristics at puberty. It can be converted by the body into more potent androgens, such as testosterone and androstenedione. Also, it can be converted into the female hormone estrogen. 

Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate test helps diagnose and differentiate certain endocrine disorders, contributing to a comprehensive understanding of hormonal balance in the body.
