Androgen levels, insulin sensitivity, and early insulin response in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: a long-term follow-up study
2011 (English)In: Fertility and Sterility, ISSN 0015-0282, Vol. 95, no 3, 1146-1148 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Thirty-four women with polycystic ovary syndrome who previously had participated in studies with intravenous glucose tolerance test and hyperinsulinemic, euglycemic clamp between 1987 and 1995 underwent anthropometric, endocrine (T and sex-hormone binding globulin serum concentration), and metabolic (intravenous glucose tolerance test, hyperinsulinemic, euglycemic clamp, and androgens) measurements. Free androgen levels and β-cell function decreased over time in women with polycystic ovary syndrome, but insulin sensitivity remained unaltered.
