Abstract

Aim: Data are inconsistent whether hyperinsulinemia might be associated with adrenal hyperandrogenism in young adults born with low birth weight (LBW). Method: We investigated the insulin and adrenal steroid production of 70 young LBW adults [33 women (birth weight: 1,795 ± 435 g) and 37 men (birth weight: 1,832 ± 337 g)]. Their results were compared to those of 30 controls (14 men, 16 women), born with normal weight. Results: In LBW women, we measured higher basal DHEA (33.5 ± 13.1 vs. 23.6 ± 8.7 nmol/l, p
