How's about we go corn hole us a drunk?
Geesh. It sounds pretty frigging wonderful but the down is nasty. $30 a month is $400 a year and yes that's not chicken scratch unless you like tossing money on the ground. It's unfortunate that it's not covered.Couple things..
I pay out of pocket for my script of DHEA.. its not covered and I have a decent plan. cost about 30$ a month.
#2- yes DHEA has a very short half life.. Before taking DHEA I had levels around 5 or 6. On 100mg a day, my levels jumped up to like 14.8ish.
I had a few blood tests that showed my DHEA was regularly at 14ish on 100mg a day.
One of those blood tests, I did not take my DHEA the morning I had my blood test and my levels were 9ish.
So waiting 8 hours made my DHEA levels drop quite a bit.
I have a migraine medication I had practically had to go to court over to get covered because it's "dual-use and its primary use isn't for migraines". We're talking a medicine...the only one I've ever seen that will take even an already booming migraine and shut it right down like nothing ever happened. Most medicines require you to take migraine medicine while it's starting and if you don't, they don't really work. The cost of this little baby that is for seizures but is incredible for migraines? $160 freeking dollars for 6 pills. I have some months I go through 9 or 12 pills.
I looked DHEA up.
DHEA is a steroid hormone with androgenic (masculinizing) properties, which is naturally synthesized by the human body. It reaches its maximum levels around the age of 25 and then decreases quite rapidly until 50 to 60 years of age. DHEA levels continue to decrease, but more slowly, until the age of 70 to 80 when they represent only 10 to 20% of what they were at age 20. Because DHEA level reduction is age-related, some think that DHEA may be in cause in several diseases associated with aging.
Further down they consider it a natural health product which I guess is why they won't cover it despite it sounding like they should. :/ I'm sorry they suck balls but like my migraine medicine, they do shit that just doesn't make sense sometimes.
I'd be concerned about this though because this is pretty crazy...
