    My physician wrote DHEA x 10 years. I have looked and I can't find any definate diagnosis code for this or for dehydroepiandrosterone. Any help would be great. Thanks

    did he give you anything else? He could be saying the patient has been taking DHEA for 10 years.

    I agree with Michellde. Yes DHEA is given in low dosage as treatment for Addison's Disease for a longer period.
    Also Addisons with Depression also could be treated with DHEA.
    Thank you
