High DHEA

Dr. Lupo:

I recently have been having peri symptoms and am taking prometrium.  I also had low feritin level of 8 but has gone up to 26, then tested b12 of 1183 high and have just tested DHEA it was very high at 2093.  During this testing of DHEA I was under very high stress.  I was told I had adrenal fatigue last year.  What does this his DHEA mean and what should I be looking for in diseases and what doc should I be seeing about this?  Thank you for any help.

Pat

We aren't doctors here - just patients who try to help each other with thyroid issues.  You can try posting your question on the expert forum; my DHEA was low, not high, so I don't know the significance.  

I'd like to get my b12 up like yours; in spite of taking shots every 2 weeks, my level won't go above 700........

I hope someone else can help you better than I can.
