Table 1 LH and FSH concentrations (mean ± SD) in self-reporting AAS users from cohort 2 (n = 45) in relation to VDR rs2228570 polymorphism

From: Vitamin D receptor rs2228570 polymorphism is associated with LH levels in men exposed to anabolic androgenic steroids

VDR Genotype LH (IU/l) FSH (IU/l)
rs2228570
 TT (n = 7) 0.60 (± 0.60) 0.35 (± 2.24)
 TC (n = 21) 1.68 (± 1.35) 1.40 (± 1.82)
 CC (n = 17) 2.20 (± 0.59)* 1.20 (± 1.34)
  1. CC-individuals had statistical significant higher LH-levels compared to individuals carrying the T-allele
  2. * p < 0.05
