Metabolite Identification
Common NameDehydroandrosterone
DescriptionDehydroandrosterone is a normal human androgen. It has been found dehydroandrosterone and other androgens excretion is affected by seasonal rhythms changes. In a study of patients with peptic ulcer in the stage of remission, their androgen levels were higher both in summer and winter, but in the spring their levels are higher in normal subjects. There is a high correlation between Dehydroandrosterone excretion and testosterone; this ratio is also used as an aid for a better discrimination between physiologically high and pharmacologically high ratios of testosterone in sports.
