My BMD increased
March 3, 2013
Based upon studies published on PubMed and journals, my MD added DHEA to my existing supplementation. After a year, my DEXA showed an increase in BMD. Prior to that it had been decreasing steadily. I am very grateful! I do not take drugs for bone loss, due to the side effects I have experienced, so it was great to find an alternative. The amount you should take, and whether it's indicated for you, should be determined by your own health care provider. I am taking other supplements as well, but this is the first time my BMD went up.
Pros:I like the convenience of the higher "dosage." Many DHEA supplements only come in 5 mg. This one comes in 25 mg.
