Hi, I'm male, 51, I have high testosteron, high DGT and low DHEA (cortisol is normal). Additionally I have high prolactin but this may be explained by microadenoma in pituitary (taking now dostinex). What's the possible reason for high test with low DHEA? Blood cancer test for PCA is ok.
JA: In general, how has your health been lately?
Customer: In general ok, but sexual function is unstable
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no

prolactin level went inside the borders though still in the upper half
