Abstract

Several data support that adrenal hyperandrogenism affects women with low birth weight (LBW). We also found an association between serum dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and fasting insulin levels. The aim of our study was to detect the acute effects of reactive hyperinsulinemia during oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) on DHEA(S) levels in LBW men and women. Fifty three men and 47 women (of those, 37 men and 33 women were LBW) were enrolled. DHEA, DHEAS, and insulin levels were measured before and during OGTT. Cortisol was also measured. DHEA/cortisol ratio during OGTT was calculated to analyze the acute effect of hyperinsulinemia on DHEA levels. During OGTT, DHEA and cortisol levels decreased in each individual, independently of gender and birth weight. Serum DHEAS decreased to a minor (but significant) extent only in LBW women (pAUC (r = 0.48, p
