Biochemical Hyperandrogenism

Biochemical Hyperandrogenism means that the levels of androgens (male sex hormones) that are measured in the blood are too high. There are two types of how Hyperandrogenism is assessed: In clinical hyperandrogenism, doctors look at physical signs that indicate that the androgen levels are too high, such as excessive body hair (hirsutism), acne and hair loss. Biochemical hyperandrogenism means that the blood levels of androgens are above the normal levels.
