Abstract

Introduction: Insulin resistance (IR), hyperinsulinaemia and concomitant metabolic syndrome (MS) are known to be independent risk factors for coronary arterial disease (CAD). The aim of this study was to examine the frequency of IR, hyperinsulinaemia and MS in individuals with early androgenetic alopecia (AGA).
