Abstract

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is considered to be the main reason of hyperandrogenism in reproductive women. There are often metabolic disorders connected with carbohydrate and adipose metabolism in the patients with PCOS. However, presence of metabolic disorders does not influence the diagnosis of the syndrome. The investigations demonstrated that the changes in lifestyle and use of proper medications could normalize endocrine system and metabolism through insulin-sensitivity increase and in the result it could restore the menses and ovulations. This paper introduces present knowledge concerning metabolic disorders associated with PCOS.
