Although androgenic hormones decrease HDLC concentration, no direct evidence has linked them to atherosclerosis. The present study was undertaken to extend our ability to assess risk associated with androgen induced lipoprotein(Lp) changes by simultaneously gathering information about postprandial triglyceridaemia (PPT), LDL particle size, HDL and Lp(a) in men either taking exogenous androgens or with suppressed endogenous androgen concentrations. The experimental groups comprised nine male… CONTINUE READING
