BACKGROUND Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) frequently exhibit central obesity, glucose intolerance, atherogenic dyslipidemia and hypertension, which are characteristic features of a condition of cardiometabolic risk. Our objective was to investigate the relationship between visceral adiposity index (VAI) and phenotypic characteristics in women with PCOS. METHODS We conducted a cross-sectional case-control study in our Endocrinology Outpatients Clinic. A total of 220 women with… CONTINUE READING
