Cortisol is widely known as the “stress hormone.” Aside from regulating your body’s stress response, it controls metabolism and regulates blood sugars.
Your body converts DHEA-S into androgens (testosterone and androstenedione) and estrogen. DHEA-S is critical for the development of testosterone and estrogen during puberty and for reproduction in all sexes.
Represents your anabolic/catabolic imbalance. Since DHEA-S is an anabolic hormone that inhibits the catabolic effects of cortisol, this calculation can estimate the HPA axis dysfunction (Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal).
