Dihydrotestosterone Blood Test
Dihydrotestosterone makes male primary sex characteristics during embryonic life in the womb and is also responsible for the development of most secondary sex characteristics in males at puberty and male sexual function throughout adult life. Less is known about its importance in women, but it is known to cause much of the body and pubic hair growth after puberty and may help to determine the age at female puberty begins.
Elevated dihydrotestosterone levels may indicate hypergonadism (when the testes do not function properly) or hirsutism (excessive hair growth on a woman's face and body).
