#### What you need to know A 27 year old woman with a recent diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome comes to see you. She wants to know more about the condition and the consequences for her health (box 1). #### Box 1: Background facts Polycystic ovary syndrome affects 6%-7% of women.1 Women may experience The relation between polycystic ovary syndrome and obesity is poorly understood. Polycystic ovary syndrome is not caused by, and does not cause, obesity. However, obesity is associated… 

Prevalence of Clinical and Paraclinical Symptoms and Findings in Patients with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Ultrasound and Their Fertility Outcomes

TLDR
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a multifactorial disorder which has a wide range of clinical and biochemical complications and symptoms.

Natural Molecules in the Management of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): An Analytical Review

TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge about the efficacy of natural molecule supplementation in the management of PCOS.

The role of serum β-trophin and endostatin in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome: Are they correlated?

TLDR
Increased β-trophin is closely associated with increased ES in patients with PCOS, which may be the useful indicators for the management of PCOS.

Serum Leptin Concentration is Correlated to Insulin Resistance in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Patients

TLDR
There was a significant correlation between serum leptin levels and HOMA-IR values in PCOS patients, and this correlation was found to be significant regardless of patient's BMI, therefore is considered to have a direct effect on insulin resistance in PCos.

TLDR
The role of sex hormones in the development of insulin resistance and the role of insulin sensitivity by sex hormones is investigated in this study.

Circulating Microparticles as Indicators of Cardiometabolic Risk in PCOS.

Mechanisms Involved in the Relationship between Vitamin D and Insulin Resistance: Impact on Clinical Practice

TLDR
Although there is a biological plausibility linking the status of vitamin D and insulin resistance supported by basic and clinical research findings, well-designed randomized clinical trials as well as basic research are necessary to know the molecular pathways involved in this association.

Long-term cardiometabolic disease risk in women with PCOS: a systematic review and meta-analysis

TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis of longitudinal studies linking polycystic ovary syndrome and cardiometabolic disease quantifies this risk, which is important for clinicians to inform patients and to take into account in the cardiovascular risk assessment of women with PCOS.

Downregulation of serum long noncoding RNA GAS5 may contribute to insulin resistance in PCOS patients

TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between IR and differential expression of lncRNA Growth-arrest specific transcript 5 in patients’ serum with and without PCOS shows that there is a negative association between GAS5 expression and homeostasis model of assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR).
