My DD16, was having a few things going on & we decided she should see a GYN for the first time (lucky her!). One of the issues was objectively measurable, namely the presence of dark hair slightly beyond the norm. I've followed a couple PCOS threads over it because my sister was diagnosed with it.
DD is elsewise fully in the societally-imposed definition of 'feminine': tall, slender, great figure; she's done a little modeling. I mention that because of the pertinence to potential hormone issues. Normal cycle.
So today we got DD's bloodwork results back, and her testosterone, free testosterone, LH, everything is in the reference range, EXCEPT her DHEA is more than double the high end value it should fall below.
She has generalized anxiety disorder, so she's ready to go into orbit. I'm concerned but in information-gathering, researching-fool mode.
The doctor mentioning adrenal tumors didn't help any.
I know the odds are long, but anyone here have any experience with DHEA levels that are way off? Thanks anyway for reading through all this...
