  • OBJECTIVE The physiological role of adrenal androgens In humans remains unclear. Furthermore, there are few data on the relation between sex steroids and adrenal androgen production. We have assessed the effects of sex steroid hormone administration on adrenal androgen levels, by studying a large group of transsexual patients. DESIGN A non‐randomized intervention.
