Intraocular pressure, glaucoma
Have you heard of DHEA causing high IOP (intraocular pressure) or possibly temporary glaucoma. I have been taking DHEA for about a year. I like the benefits it has provided both physically and mentally. However my last flight physical for the military showed me having high IOP in both eyes. Two days after I stopped taking DHEA my pressures where back to normal.
I have not heard of this side effect yet, and I have not seen it mentioned in the medical literature, however it is a possibility to consider. There's a lot we don't know about the long term effects of DHEA. If your IOP is increased again after restarting the DHEA and then returns to normal after stopping, then that would make it quite likely that in your case it was involved.

Smoking damages your lungs, reduces blood quality, affects your heart, impairs brain function, reduces fertility, and causes shortness of breath. Tobacco has been shown to cause cancer in virtually any part of the body, as well as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and respiratory disease.  Quitting smoking should be the first step in controlling the effects of smoking, but there are many additional choices you can make to help reverse or slow down the damage caused by long-term smoking once you've already quit smoking. Learning how to manage the effects of smoke damage can help you feel better and live a healthier life.
