Just had a blood test because of thinning hair on my scalp along with facial hair. Everything was normal except for a dheas level of 407. I see a specialist next week but was wondering if anyone has had a blood test result like this and what it was caused by. Also having mood swings, weight gain and always hungry. I am a 46 year old female. Have had a hysterectomy but still have one ovary. (one ovary was taken out because of a large cyst) Am thinking maybe polycystic ovary disease but the thought of an adrenal tumor is freaking me out. Thanks
