Abstract

A CLINICAL ASSESSMENT OF POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME AND ITS ASSOCIATED RISK FACTORS

M. Rangapriya* and A. Nanthini

ABSTRACT

Aim/objective: The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence, etiologies of PCOS and its association with various risk factors and to assess the various medical co-morbid conditions in PCOS women. Risk assessment would be one of the strategies to identify this syndrome early so as to encourage young women to seek timely treatment and prevent its long term complications. Methods: Cross sectional observational study for duration of 6 months. Result: The prevalence of PCOS in this study was 29.38%. Among all risk factors, family history of PCOS (p<0.008), BMI (p<0.04), WHR (p<0.01) and fast food diet habit (p<0.03) were strongly associated with the presence of PCOS and lack of awareness were reported (64.4 %). Conclusion: The most important predisposing risk factors include the family history of PCOS, obesity and fast food diet habit. The PCOS patients were at a higher risk of developing diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia and infertility. So, the early detection of this syndrome offers an opportunity to treat this disease and prevent future morbidities.

Keywords: PCOS, infertility, insulin, obesity, diabetes mellitus, WHR.
