Early phenotypes in polycystic ovary syndrome: some answers, more questions
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder associated with poor reproductive outcomes, including infertility and pregnancy complications, and poor metabolic outcomes, including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome. Prevalence estimates for PCOS range from 7% to 15% of reproductive-age women worldwide, depending on the diagnostic criteria used. Accordingly, PCOS-associated dysglycemia and obesity are a global public health risk. Despite the public health importance of PCOS, notable gaps exist in the literature regarding its pathophysiology, natural history, and optimal management.
