Testosterone is the most important androgen. Testosterone production starts from adrenarche in both sexes, in males in the testes, in females in the ovaries, and in both sexes to a lesser extent also in the adrenal cortex. Circulating in blood, it is partially attached to sex hormone-binding globulin; the free part represents the active steroid affecting various organs to a certain extent. Testosterone is responsible for the formation of the male phenotype, the development of muscular tissue, the bone density, and in a certain way it influences the fat and sugar metabolism. It also has a big impact on skin, skin appendages, and hair in particular. Testosterone increases sebum production and controls hair growth as well as hair loss.
