Results of TT, AD, DHEA, DHEA-S and cortisol before and after 2 days of dexamethasone administration. The levels of cortisol, DHEA and DHEA-S were all suppressed to narrow ranges after 2 days of dexamethasone administration, especially for the levels of cortisol and DHEA. The changes in TT and AD were parallel. Nine and 8 of 51 patients with PCOS had significant decreases (below 50% of the baseline value) in TT and AD, respectively, following the 2-day dexamethasone administration. PRE: Levels of androgens before dexamethasone administration; POST: Levels of androgens after dexamethasone administration
