Neonatal hypothalamic androgenization in the female rat induces changes in peripheral insulin sensitivity and adiposity function at adulthood.

UNLABELLED: It is recognized that there exists a link between hyperandrogenicity and insulin resistance.

OBJECTIVE: By using the neonatally androgenized female rat we explored whether this treatment modifies peripheral insulin sensitivity and visceral fat function at adulthood.
