  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of DHEA on endothelial dysfunction in patients with systemic lupus by measuring: 1. changes in brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) and 2. changes in biomarkers of cardiovascular risk. Patients will be enrolled in a randomized, double-blinded crossover trial of DHEA or placebo for ten weeks, then crossed over to the alternate treatment arm after a six-week washout period. HYPOTHESIS: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) administration in premenopausal women with SLE modifies cardiovascular risk by improving vascular endothelial function and other biomarkers associated with cardiovascular heart disease.


Inclusion Criteria: - Female - Member of the Michigan Lupus Cohort - Meet the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria for SLE - Premenopausal Exclusion Criteria: - Smoker - Diabetic - Prednisone dose > 10 mg
