Preserved insulin sensitivity and {beta}-cell activity, but decreased glucose effectiveness in normal-weight women with the polycystic ovary syndrome

, : Preserved insulin sensitivity and {beta}-cell activity, but decreased glucose effectiveness in normal-weight women with the polycystic ovary syndrome. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 90(6): 3381-3386

Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia are often considered intrinsic features of the polycystic ovary syndrome ( PCOS). Nevertheless, conflicting results of insulin sensitivity and secretion have been obtained in the subgroup of normal-weight women with PCOS. Differences in body composition, ethnicity, and diet composition and a family history of metabolic diseases may act as confounding variables in women with PCOS.
