High Pressure Liquid Chromatography and Tandem Mass Spectrometry (HPLC/MS-MS)
Evaluation of the cause of hirsutism and other androgen excess syndromes. Elevated AG level indicates increased dihydrotestosterone (DHT) production.
Prepubertal Children: not established. Adult Males: 112 - 1046 ng/dL; Adult Females: 11 - 249 ng/dL.
Occasionally, normal females with no evidence of hirsutism may have levels well above the normal range.
