Nelson AL
The Female Patient. 2009;34(8):15

As a group, women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are at risk for diabetes in greater numbers and at an earlier age than the general population. PCOS may also increase the risk associated with hypertension and dyslipidemia, especially among obese women. Linking these risks together in an assessment of metabolic syndrome provides a more complete approach to identify women with PCOS who may need therapies to reduce serious long-term health hazards.
