In a prospective study we have measured serum levels of sex hormone-binding globulin SHBG , androgens, oestrogens and gonadotropins in 20 male IDDM patients with the aim of evaluating the effect of improved glycaemic control on these levels and to compare the IDDM patients with an age- and weight-matched healthy non-diabetic control group. Glycaemic control was optimized by a trained diabetologist according to the patients' measurements of home blood glucose concentrations and reported hypoglycaemic episodes during a three month period. Prior to regulation the patients, compared to healthy control subjects, had significantly higher serum levels of oestrone 0. After regulation, the patients obtained significantly lower levels of glycosylated haemoglobin Levels of free-testosterone 0.
