Previous studies of adrenal androgens and estrogens in critical illness were limited by measuring only selected sex steroids and by including men (who have confounding simultaneous changes in gonadal steroids). We evaluated relationships between changes in serum levels of cortisol (F), androgens, estrogens, and gonadotropins in 20 postmenopausal women with acute critical illness to determine if changes in adrenal androgens and estrogens paralleled gonadal axis suppression or adrenal stimulation… CONTINUE READING
