old woman and 4 year's ago my Dhea sulfate read 662.

urine test. Nothing ever came of this.
I'm 5'8 and weighed 152 lbs at that time.
just putting on weight, I now weigh 164 Lbs and its all around the

always been very thin and all my family as well. I do have another
appt. with another endocrinologist soon.
