This must not be taken for granted. It is a medical sign pointing to certain hormonal imbalances. An increased in Androgens (male hormones) or oversensitivity of hair follicles to androgens are responsible for hursitism. Testosteone hormone is responsible for hair growth and pigmentation in male. Women with hirsutism therefore have an increased production rate of testosterone. The presence of hirsitism in female also reflects by way of an increase in her insulin level which stimulate the ovarian theca cells that produce androgens. Therefore treatments that can reduce the high insulin will be most effective for reduction of hirsutism in female.
