Abstract

Physicians treating women with DM1 should be aware of the risk of hyperandrogenism in them and should include evaluation of hirsutism, menstrual abnormalities, and biochemical hyperandrogenism in their routine examinations. Future studies are needed to determine the best preventive and therapeutic options for the hyperandrogenism of these patients.
