Licorice Root - DHEAS- Hair Loss
I just got some labs back from the Doc. I have low normal testoterone but elevated DHEAS. I bet that is why my hair is so thin! My testosterone used to be elevated (tested years ago), but i am doing a lot to lower testosterone - DCI, NAC, spearmint tea, green tea extract, inositol- and now I will be adding licorice root to lower the DHEAS. I am really hopeful that this is the remaining piece to get my hair back!
Does anyone have licorice root experiences to share?

I actually have the same problem--high DHEA but normal testosterone! I used to take licorice/peony for hirsutism and it worked like a charm but you can't do that for very long before your adrenals crap out. I was on a high dose! Now I am trying withania complex and it turns out I'm ALLERGIC! Ugh!29 years old: adrenal fatigue and estrogen dominance which mimics PCOS
