We measured metabolites of 3 steroids, namely dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), androstenedione (AD4), and 11[beta]-hydroxyandrostenedione (11OHAD4), and calculated the sum of DHEA metabolites (DHEA, androstenediol, 16[alpha]-hydroxy-DHEA, 16[beta]-hydroxy-DHEA, 16-oxo-androstenediol, and androstenetriol), the sum of AD4 metabolites (androsterone and etiocholanolone) (8, 10), and the 11OHAD4 metabolite (11HA).
