Abstract [en]

Objective: Increased testosterone and decreased sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) are associated with a number of adverse cardiovascular risk factors in postmenopausal women. The aim of this popula-tion-based study of women aged 25 to 50 was to as-sess the relationship between free androgen index (FAI) and cardiovascular risk factors in premeno-pausal women.

Methods: A population-based survey of 396 premenopausal women with no hormonal trea- tment was undertaken as part of the Northern Swe-den MONICA study. The study involved question-naires, anthropometry and assays of testosterone and SHBG.

Results: Increased FAI was associated with a number of cardiovascular risk factors in premeno-pausal women but this relationship was strongly af-fected by body mass index (BMI). After adjustment for age and BMI, FAI was significantly associated with increased systolic and diastolic blood pressures.

Conclusion: Hyperandrogenism is associated with increased blood pressure and these findings empha-size the need to assess cardiovascular risk factors in women with hyperandrogenism of all ages.
