Trajectories of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate predict mortality in older adults: the cardiovascular health study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) has been proposed as an antiaging hormone, but its importance is unclear. Assessment of an individual's ability to maintain a DHEAS set point, through examination of multiple DHEAS levels over time, may provide insight into biologic aging. METHODS Using Cox proportional hazard models, we examined the… (More)
