Obesity and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

World Obesity have announced a new learning module on Obesity and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This module will look at the central role of insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinaemia in PCOS with the implications for clinical management. The role of visceral fat as a contributor to insulin resistance in PCOS is covered along with the role of metformin in treatment. The question of whether the presence of PCOS may make it harder for women to lose weight will also be tackled.
