New and more active concepts of steroid binding globulin action are emerging from recent research. As a result, examination of steroid levels in aging humans and the role of steroid binding globulins need to be re-visited. This review will discuss the possibility that sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) plays an active role in the aging process. It will discuss the changes in blood levels of SHBG in aging humans in association with sexual activity, prostate hypertrophy and cancer, uterine… CONTINUE READING
