Objective: Androsterone glucuronide (ADTG) concentrations have been suggested as a more reliable marker of the effects of androgen at the target tissue level and is significantly elevated in hirsute compared to non-hirsute women with PCOS. As the mechanism for hyperandrogenemia in obese and nonobese PCOS may differ, this study compares the different precursors of testosterone, including DHEAS, ADTG and androstenedione in nonobese compared to obese women with PCOS and their imp...
