    XX women with PCOS can have T levels above this new 5 nmol/L cutoff, we don't charge them with an ADRV, or even require that they lower their T levels.
    That sounds wise. How frequently do women with PCOS have T levels above the cutoff?

    First, let me emphasize that I am not a gynecologist or reproductive endocrinologist, so not exactly an expert on polycystic ovary, also known by an older generation as Stein-Leventhal syndrome.

    It is true that these women have high testosterone levels, but their physique is anything but athletic. They are generally overwight, tend to be diabetic, so not considering them in the same class as the transsexuals is entirely appropriate.

    Never in the known history of medicine, according to the IAAF who said the highest known T level ever recorded was 4.8 (slightly under the 5.0 nmol/L cutoff).
