It is well established that testosterone administration induces muscle fiber hypertrophy and myonuclear addition in men, however, it remains to be determined whether similar morphological adaptations can be achieved in women. The aim of the present study was therefore to investigate whether exogenously administered testosterone alters muscle fiber morphology in skeletal muscle of young healthy, physically active women. Thirty-five young (20-35 years), recreationally trained women were randomly a...

Abstract Introduction Dyslipidemias are common and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. The menopause transition is associated with an atherogenic lipid profile, with an increase in the concentrations of total cholesterol (TC) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), triglycerides (TG), apolipoprotein B (apoB) and potentially lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], and a decrease in the concentration of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). Aim The aim of this clinical guide is to provi...

Emerging evidence indicates that testosterone, which can increase muscle mass and strength, stimulate erythropoiesis, and promote competitive behaviour, enhances the physical performance of women. Indeed, levels of testosterone within the normal female range are related to muscle mass and athletic performance in female athletes. Furthermore, among these athletes the prevalence of hyperandrogenic conditions, including both polycystic ovary syndrome and rare Differences/Disorders of Sex Developmen...

Women presenting with amenorrhea and elevated serum levels of FSH before the age of 40 may suffer from premature ovarian insufficiency (POI). POI can be caused by ovarian damage through surgery, irradiation and chemotherapy. Autoimmune disease and genetic causes are also possible causes for development of POI. Since today we have a wide diagnostic arsenal available for patients, all women should be offered extended investigation. It is also important that affected women receive sufficient estrog...
