Evaluation of Endocrine and Metabolic Parameters in the New Diagnostic Phenotypes of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a very frequent endocrine disease of women in reproductive age, with an estimated prevalence of 5 to 10 % according to the studied population. Its cause remains not fully understood. PCOS is characterized by hyperandrogenism, chronic anovulation and / or polycystic ovaries. Patients, in a ...

The Genetics of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders in women. Its marked phenotypic variability, puzzling list of associated conditions, and hence potential risk to a woman's health over her lifecycle clearly remain a clinical investigational, genetic, and therapeutic challenge. To a great extent, this variability can ...

Metabolic Disorders in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinopathy in women of reproductive age with a probable prevalence of 5% to 10%. PCOS is characterized by chronic anovulation, menstrual irregularities, evidence of hyperandrogenism (either clinical, manifested as hirsutism, acne, male pattern balding, or biochemical, manifested by elevated serum adrenal and/or ...

Therefore, there are some alternative treatments as adding the ...

Etiological Factors of Obesity-Associated Hyperandrogenemia in Peripubertal Girls

A number of pathophysiological mechanisms underlie the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Neuroendocrine abnormalities play a significant role in most women with PCOS, and PCOS is associated with relative resistance of the gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) pulse generator to negative feedback by progesterone and estradiol. This hypothalamic resistance to negative feedback ...
