CONTEXT Prenatal androgen excess can cause a phenocopy of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in mammals. Retrospective studies have suggested that girls at risk for PCOS have low birth weight, and prospective studies have suggested an increased prevalence of small-for-gestational-age offspring in women with PCOS. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to(More)
CONTEXT Polycystic ovary syndrome confers an increased risk for type 2 diabetes in affected women as early as adolescence. First-degree relatives (FDRs) of affected women are at increased risk for associated reproductive and metabolic phenotypes. OBJECTIVE We sought to prospectively assess insulin sensitivity and secretion and to measure reproductive(More)
Youth with type 1 diabetes are at high risk for psychosocial morbidities. These include depression, disturbed eating behavior, family conflict, poor health-related quality of life, low self-efficacy, and difficulty with medical adherence and metabolic control. A number of prevention interventions have been studied in this group, with the overall goal of(More)
CONTEXT Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a heritable, complex genetic disease. Animal models suggest that androgen exposure at critical developmental stages contributes to disease pathogenesis. We hypothesized that genetic variation resulting in increased androgen production produces the phenotypic features of PCOS by programming during critical(More)
