7-keto DHEA (also known as 7-oxo DHEA) is a steroid produced by metabolism of DHEA.
It is not directly converted to testosterone or estrogen.
7-keto DHEA is rapidly absorbed when given as a supplement and converted to its sulfate derivative. It is commonly used to produce the metabolic effects of DHEA while avoiding metabolism into estrogens or androgens, and clinical research supports its role in benefiting metabolism and weight management. Endogenous 7-keto DHEA may have some anticortisol activity through enzyme competition which in the case of hypercortisolism may be beneficial to the adverse effects of cortisol on metabolic syndrome. Most studies on 7-keto DHEA are on improving the metabolic rate where there appears to be improvement in metabolism despite being on a low caloric diet. There is also limited information that 7-keto DHEA may act to increase levels of T3 while patients are on a caloric restricted diet.
