PCOS Women at Greater Risk for Metabolic Syndrome

Women who suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)  have an increased chance of developing cardiovascular disease, according to a study in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The findings also report that metabolic syndrome is more prevalent in women with PCOS, and that women with both conditions exhibit more hormonal and menstrual cycle irregularity than women with PCOS only.

Senior author Dr. John Nestler, Professor of Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University: said “These findings indicate that women with PCOS should automatically be screened for metabolic syndrome to prevent the risk of early-onset cardiovascular disease.”

After reviewing medical charts for 161 women, study investigators identified 106 women (46 women with PCOS and metabolic syndrome; 60 women with PCOS alone) for participation and analysis. The study revealed that women with PCOS are nearly twice as likely to have metabolic syndrome in comparison with women without PCOS in the general population. Women demonstrating characteristics of both PCOS and metabolic syndrome were found to also have more severe insulin resistance.
