Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) appear at increased cardiovascular risk due in part to a dyslipidemia characterized by increased plasma triglyceride and reduced high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels. This is a detailed exploratory study of HDL composition in 35 obese [body mass index (BMI), > 27] and 22 nonobese subjects with PCOS and in 14 healthy obese and 18 nonobese women. Although we found reduced levels of total and HDL2 cholesterol in obese women with PCOS, HDL… CONTINUE READING
