What all associations are we supposed to know regarding SHBG? as in FA has a small section on it on pg 321 in endo, but im not sure what all we're suppose to know about it. I'm assuming more than just whats written there.

I just heard this from DIT. So in PCOS, increased insulin decreases the expression go SHBG, thus contributing to increased adrogen that leads to the symptoms of hyperandrogensim.

Just know the sites of Buspirone, Ondansetron, Triptans. Better if you know 2nd messenger system as well.

Know the fact that SHBG and Thyroid BG increase during pregrancy or with OCP or with increased estrogen state.
