New Study Finds Further Evidence That Diabetes Gene May be Linking to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Study of 752 Women is Among the Largest Population-Based Studies Conducted Into the Disorder Afflicting Up to Five Percent of Female Population

(BETHESDA, MD) – Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) occurs when ovarian cysts block a woman’s normal ovulation and menstrual cycle. While the problem sounds straightforward, the disease is complex, born from both multiple genetic components and environmental factors. PCOS affects up to five percent of the female population, and those diagnosed with the disease have a 2- to 7-fold risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). For this reason researchers believe a gene related to diabetes may also play a role in the onset of PCOS. A new study of 146 PCOS patients has found that the “diabetes gene” (calpain-10 (CAPN10)) is in fact an interesting candidate for explaining the syndrome.
