Abstract

The present study examined serum testosterone and estradiol levels on the day of admission, 5th and on 10th day following acute myocardial infarction in men. Controls were matched for age and body mass index. Testosterone levels were low on the day of admission and remained statistically unchanged on 5th and 10th day as compared to controls. On the contrary, estradiol levels were significantly higher on the day of admission. A significant decrease in estradiol concentration in comparison to the levels on the day of admission was observed on loth day post myocardial infarction. However, the estradiol levels on 10th day were significantly higher than control subjects. The results of the study suggest that in acute myocardial infarction, hyperestrogenemia is associated with hypotestosteronemia.
