  1. Determinants of sex hormone levels in men as useful indices in hormone-related disorders.

    Article - En anglais

    ecause the determinants of serum sex hormone levels in men have been infrequently studied, we investigated the relation of several personal characteristics to serum levels of testosterone (T), dihydrotestosterone (DHT), estrone (E1), estradiol (E2) and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) among 98 Japanese American men in Hawaii, aged 52-74.

    The SHBG levels and T/(E1+E2) ratios decreased progressively with increasing body mass index.

    The SHBG levels were also inversely associated with hematocrit levels.
