Background: The bone age (BA) assess the skeletal maturity and determine the children linear growth. Mexican children have a slightly delay in skeletal maturity before 10 years, but they reach in mean a BA 1 year in advance at the end of the puberty. On the other hand, Mexico has a high prevalence of childhood obesity and the adiposity has been associated with the BA advance in other populations. For the above, the overweight and obesity could be impact in the...

Background: Obesity in females is often associated with metabolic complications and hyperandrogenism but the role of adipose tissue (AT) in androgen synthesis remains unclear.Aims/Objectives: Employing human subcutaneous and visceral AT and cultured adipocytes, we studied whether AT could be a source of androgens promoting hyperandrogenism in lean and especially in obese females.Methods</st...
