Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia play important roles in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). In addition, some women with PCOS have been shown to have insulin secretory defects and can be predicted to be at an increased risk for glucose intolerance. We performed the present study to determine the prevalence and risk factors for glucose intolerance in Korean women with PCOS. We consecutively recruited 194 women with PCOS diagnosed by American Society for Reproductive… 

Pathophysiology, risk factors, and screening methods for prediabetes in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

When assessing risk of future diabetes in women with PCOS, it is important to take into account the method used for screening as well as other risk factors that these women might have.

Association of Androgen Excess with Glucose Intolerance in Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

It is suggested that androgen excess indicated by high FAI levels might serve as indicator of glucose intolerance, as it might promote insulin resistance and β-cell dysfunction in women with PCOS.

Prevalence of abnormal glucose tolerance in Indian women with polycystic ovarian syndrome

The prevalence of impaired glucose intolerance (IGT) and type 2 DM in women with PCOS is significantly more in comparison with healthy controls, and women withPCOS should periodically have an OGTT for diabetes screening.

A study on prevalence of abnormal glucose tolerance and correlation of insulin resistance with dyslipidemia in South-Indian women with polycystic ovary syndrome

Indian women with PCOS are at increased risk of IGT and NIDDM, and PCOS women have significant alteration in lipid profile and hence are more prone for cardiovascular disease.

Can dysglycemia in OGTT be predicted by baseline parameters in patients with PCOS?

One-third of the cohort of PCOS women with either T2DM or IGT displayed normal fasting glucose values but without confirming any specific predictor for dysglycemia, suggesting the evaluation of glycemic status using OGTT in all women with PCOS is strongly supported.

Relationship of Body Mass Index and Waist Hip Ratio with Insulin Resistance in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Patients

It is suggested that abdominal obesity was a good predictor of IR among PCOS patients and waist circumference or waist hip ratio may be used as a screening tool for IR risk assessment among PCos patients as an inexpensive, noninvasive and easy-to-detect marker.

The plasma nitric oxide and homocysteine levels and their association with insulin resistance in South Indian women with polycystic ovary syndrome

South Indian women with PCOS had elevated IR and homocyeteine and lowered NO levels, and no Indian studies on NO and Hcy levels in women withPCOS and their association with Insulin Resistance (IR).

The LH to FSH ratio is a valuable diagnostic tool in evaluating Taiwanese women with PCOS, especially in the diagnosis of oligomenorrhea.

Glucose metabolism in obese and lean adolescents with polycystic ovary syndrome

A high proportion of obese and lean Thai adolescents with PCOS had abnormal glucose metabolism, and OGTT should be performed in adolescents withPCOS for the early detection of abnormal sugars metabolism.

Prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

It is concluded that women with PCOS should periodically have an OGTT and must be closely monitored for deterioration in glucose tolerance, particularly among those with IGT, the subgroup at highest risk for subsequent development of NIDDM.

One important finding was that lower birth weight and earlier age of menarche were associated with GI in PCOS women, indicating that PCOS patients with GI represent a subgroup with specific clinical and hormonal characteristics.

Prevalence and predictors of risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance in polycystic ovary syndrome: a prospective, controlled study in 254 affected women.

PCOS women are at significantly increased risk for IGT and type 2 diabetes mellitus at all weights and at a young age; these prevalence rates are similar in 2 different populations of PCOS women, suggesting that PCOS may be a more important risk factor than ethnicity or race for glucose intolerance in young women.

Even though G:I, HOMA and QUICKI are easier than OGTT, they could not replace the role of 2-h post-challenge plasma glucose level in the screening of IGT and NIDDM in PCOS women.

Prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance in Asian women with polycystic ovary syndrome

Prevalence of insulin resistance and prediction of glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes mellitus in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

All PCOS patients should be screened using an oGTT to identify disturbances in glucose metabolism and the conventional upper limits for total cholesterol, triglycerides, systolic and diastolic blood pressure and fasting glucose revealed low sensitivity for the identification of impaired glucose metabolism.

Predictors of abnormal glucose metabolism in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

HOMA%S, or to a lesser extent fasting insulin, appears to allow for stratified metabolic screening of PCOS women with OGTT, and could almost halve the number of OGTTs by directing them to those PCos women most likely to be suffering from abnormal glucose metabolism.

Insulin sensitivity in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

It is concluded that lean PCOS women are not more insulin resistant than healthy controls and insulin hypersecretion, on the other hand, is present even in lean PCos women.
