Does the risk of diabetes and heart disease in women with polycystic ovary syndrome lessen with age?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a highly inheritable complex genetic trait and one of the most prevalent endocrine-metabolic-reproductive disorders of humans, clinically evident in 10%–15% of reproductive-age women. It is the single most common cause of ovulatory infertility in women and of subfertility overall in Western societies. Fundamentally, most patients with PCOS, particularly those with hyperandrogenic phenotypes, also demonstrate underlying metabolic dysfunction and subclinical chronic inflammation, leading to insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinemia.
