adrenal hyperplasia ... HELP!Hi!
I am a 18 year old female. I have moderate hirsutism, and have to remove hair from areas like my face almost daily. The hairs are very coarse and grow back extremely quickly. I have been diagnosed with late-onset adrenal hyperplasia. My menstrual cycle is completely normal, and all my hormones are at the correct levels, except for DHEAS, which is extremely high.
Doctors are suggesting that I start treatment with steriods (dexamethasone) but I am hesitant, and wanted to know if there is any homeopathic treatment out there? Anything that could increase cortisol levels, and decrease androgen levels especially DHEAS? I would REALLY appreciate it if anyone has any ideas or advice for me. I've tried thuja and sepia before, but they have not shown any significant effects.... =( Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks a lot,

Apart from this, I do not have any other medical problems... the only thing I can think of is that I am not slim, but not overweight either, and I have to exercise a lot to maintain my weight - basically my metabolism is not that good.
Any ideas? I really appreciate your help... thanks!
