BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex disease having both genetic and environmental components and candidate genes on obesity and insulin metabolism have been hypothesized to be involved in its etiology. OBJECTIVE We examined the possible association of adiponectin and insulin receptor gene polymorphisms with PCOS. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Despite some studies indicating that thyroid antibody positivity during pregnancy has been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, evidence regarding the effects of levothyroxine (LT4) treatment of euthyroid/subclinical hypothyroid pregnant women with autoimmune thyroid disease on pregnancy outcome is limited. We aimed to assess whether(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to cross-validate two comparable Weibull models of prediction of age at natural menopause from two cohorts, the Scheffer, van Rooij, de Vet (SRV) cohort and the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study (TLGS) cohort. It summarizes advantages and disadvantages of the models and underlines the need for achieving correct time dependency in(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare insulin resistance (IR) and metabolic characteristics of different phenotypes of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and healthy controls in a representative sample of reproductive-aged Iranian women. DESIGN Cross-sectional community-based study. PATIENTS Of 915 participants, 136 met Rotterdam criteria for PCOS and were divided in four(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore the cardiovascular risk attributable to menopausal status in a 9-year follow-up, population-based study. METHOD All middle-aged women who met our eligibility criteria were selected from the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study cohort. Data were collected by face-to-face interviews, physical examination and biochemical assessments at 3-year(More)
BACKGROUND Pregnancy has a huge impact on the thyroid function in both healthy women and those that have thyroid dysfunction. The prevalence of thyroid dysfunction in pregnant women is relatively high. OBJECTIVE The objective of this review was to increase awareness and to provide a review on adverse effect of thyroid dysfunction including(More)
BACKGROUND Recently there is a focus on the antioxidants as adjuvant treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the most endocrinopathy in reproductive age women. OBJECTIVE The aim of this review is answer to the question whether antioxidants are effective for managing of hormonal and metabolic problems in women with PCOS based on first degree(More)
OBJECTIVE Insulin resistance (IR) and metabolic disorders are common in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). However, it is still not clear which adiposity marker could precisely predict metabolic syndrome (MetS) in women with PCOS and whether these indexes are different in normo-ovulatory non-hirsute women. DESIGN A case-control study was conducted on a(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate diagnostic accuracy of lipid accumulation product (LAP) index as a marker of insulin resistance in a community-based population with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), compared with healthy women. METHODS Anthropometric measurements, biochemical parameters, LAP index and insulin resistance (IR) were compared in 134 PCOS subjects and(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinopathy affecting up to one in every five women of reproductive age. The majority of researches on PCOS focus on its biomedical aspects, often overlooking and neglecting women's own perceptions and experiences. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to explore women's perception and experiences(More)
