Metabolic syndrome risk varies by PCOS phenotype

April 20, 2016

Women diagnosed with a polycystic ovary syndrome phenotype that includes hyperandrogenism and oligo-ovulation or anovulation are at increased risk for metabolic syndrome vs. women with a normoandrogenic phenotype, according to recent study findings.

Researchers from the department of reproductive medicine and infertility at Etlik Zubeyde Hanim Women’s Health Training and Research Hospital in Ankara, Turkey, analyzed data from 100 women newly diagnosed with PCOS between September 2013 and July 2014. Researchers classified women into four phenotypes according to Rotterdam criteria: phenotype A (hyperandrogenism, oligo/anovulation and polycystic ovaries; n = 27); phenotype B (hyperandrogenism, oligo/anovulation; n = 29); phenotype C (hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovaries; n = 20) and phenotype D (oligo/anovulation and polycystic ovaries; n = 24). Researchers compared the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and metabolic risk profile among the four groups.
