Abstract

Sex Differences in Salivary DHEA, Cortisol and Testosterone The current study looked at sex differences in the hormone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in relation to circulating cortisol and testosterone levels by measuring these hormones via three salivary immunoassays taken while participants completed an online questionnaire. Out of 183 participants, 125 were female and 58 were male. Results indicate that for males there is a significant correlation between DHEA and cortisol (r = .56), as well as DHEA and testosterone (r = .56). For females there were no significant correlations found between DHEA, cortisol, and testosterone. Connections to previous literature are explored.
