Effect of chronically elevated androgen or estrogen on the glucose tolerance test and insulin response in female rhesus monkeys.

Abstract

Insulin concentrations, in response to an intravenous glucose bolus after a 24-hour fast, have been studied in female rhesus monkeys in which the circulating levels of androstenedione and testosterone or estrone and estradiol have been increased for as long as 4 1/2 years.
