The aim was to measure umbilical cord testosterone and androstenedione and to explore possible relationships with fetal weight and insulin levels. Testosterone, androstenedione and insulin were measured at birth in venous umbilical blood in 12 infants of gestational diabetic mothers and in 12 control subjects. The mean concentrations of umbilical testosterone and androstenedione were not significantly different between the infants of the diabetic and control mothers. No significant correlation was found between maternal weight, fetal weight or insulin concentrations and androgen levels.
