  • HAIR-AN Syndrome

    After 3 month of treatment the insulin resistance was substantially reduced, while her hirsutism, testosterone and DHEAS increased dramatically, with decrease of SHBG.[connection.ebscohost.com] The most common cause of hirsutism is polycystic ovarian syndrome. Patients with "idiopathic" hirsutism have normal ovulatory cycles and androgen levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This increases androgen production by the theca cells in response to LH. Insulin decreases SHBG, increasing free testosterone levels. Who gets androgen excess?[allthingsvagina.com]
