PCOS – The most common ovarian disorder

PCOS – The most common ovarian disorder. PCOS, Cystadenoma and dermoid cyst are among the common ovarian disorders found now a days.
In most cases by the time we detect, it will be in stage III. But with annual check-ups or master health check-ups and tests, doctors will be able to detect it in the early stages. We are really happy that now people understand the importance of yearly or annual check-up. We strongly believe in preventive gynaecology. For that, a women has to be aware, which means that she must know what is right and what is not. Don’t be Google-Doctors ! A woman should know when to meet the doctor. First, you should be healthy. Then only you can take care of your family members.
Laboratory tests in PCOS:
Raised serum testosterone concentration is the most common biochemical abnormality in PCOS, occurring in about 70% od cases. Serum concentration of the weak endrogen androstenedione is also elevated in PCOS. In 10-20% of patients with PCOS, serum levels of the weak adrenal endrogen dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS) are also modestly elevated, suggesting that, at least in some patients with PCOS, there may be an adrenal contribution to increased circulating androgens. Women with PCOS tend to have higher LH levels. By contrast, FSH levels are nearly normal. There may be a raised LH:FSH ratio (either 2.5:1 or 3:1). Estrogen levels in women with PCOS are normal. PCOS is also associated with peripheral insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinaemia. Insulin resistance is independent of body weight. Typically, women with PCOS have increased abdominal adiposity and visceral fat accumulation and this is correlated with insulin resistance. There is also an associated dyslipidaemia, characterised by lower concentrations of high-density lipoprotien cholesterol. Impaired glucose tolerance has been noted in 40% of women with PCOS.
