On the origin of physiologically high ratios of urinary testosterone to epitestosterone: consequences for reliable detection of testosterone administration by male athletes.

Abstract

Testosterone administration to male athletes can be safely detected in the vast majority of cases by the urinary excretion ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone glucuronides (TG/EG), which may not exceed 6. Some rare cases of physiologically high TG/EG ratios (between 6 and 12) are encountered; these may be attributed to a dysregulation of the testicular… (More)
