Abstract

Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have multiple factors that contribute to increased diabetes risk, including: insulin resistance, beta-cell dysfunction, obesity, especially centripetal obesity, family history of type 2 diabetes, and personal history of gestational diabetes. Additionally there is some evidence to suggest that polycystic ovaries and chronic anovulation per se are risk factors. Identifying glucose intolerance and treating it are important aspects of the care for women with PCOS.
