Don’t simply dismiss DHEA

Re: [“The Healthy Skeptic: Can You Find Youth in DHEA?”, Feb.25], I’m always amazed at the way medicine looks at products. DHEA may not work as promised because the body is not a group of isolated systems. As we age, many substances decrease. Replacing one will not work. We need to replace the entire cocktail.

It’s important to be cautious about over-the-counter products. But let’s not dismiss products because of superficial testing that doesn’t take all the issues into account.
