The regulation of androgen synthesis during puberty in females is complicated, with changes in steroidogenic and peripheral interconversion capacity. In the present study we have investigated the diurnal rhythm of testosterone secretion in 56 healthy girls before and during puberty, up to 2 yr postmenarche. The girls' ages ranged between 4.6-16.5 yr, and their height SD scores ranged between -3.6 and +3.7. One to 5 serum profiles (seven samples per 24 h) were taken from each girl for steroid… CONTINUE READING
