Polycystic Ovary Syndrome &
Metabolic Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a heterogeneous disorder where the main symptoms include menstrual irregularities, sub-fertility, hyperandrogenism, and hirsutism.

Metabolic syndrome is a constellation of metabolic disorders, which include mainly abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, impaired glucose metabolism, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.

The risk factors for metabolic syndrome include central obesity, hypertension, atherogenic dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance. Metabolic syndrome affects 33% of women with PCOS.

These associated disorders directly increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, cardiovascular diseases, and endometrial cancer.
