Augmentation of bone mineral density in hirsute women.

Abstract

Hirsutism is associated with both hyperandrogenism and oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea, which have opposing effects on bone mineral density (BMD). We tested the hypothesis that hyperandrogenism in hirsute women counteracts the osteopenic effects of menstrual dysfunction. Using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, we measured BMD and total bone mineral content… (More)
