Effect of Metformin on Adrenal or Ovarian Androgen Production in Overweight Pubertal Girls With Androgen Excess

Brief description of study

This study will test whether metformin administration can ameliorate androgen (male hormone) overproduction in overweight pubertal girls with androgen excess. The investigators hypothesize that improvement in insulin sensitivity by 12 weeks of metformin administration will improve androgen levels after adrenal stimulation testing with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) or ovarian stimulation testing with recombinant human chorionic gonadotropin (rhCG).
